Henning Larsen Mosque

Henning Larsen Architects has released its plans for a new mosque and Islamic community centre in Dortheavej—an area in northern Copenhagen, Denmark. Commissioned by The Islamic Society of Denmark, the building will be oriented towards Mecca, and will be comprised of a series of interlocking domes that will stand 2, 890 square meters in size upon completion. Larsen’s team is melding Nordic and Islamic architectural traditions in the mosque’s design; a first for the Scandinavian country.
