Eco-friendly architecture can be applied to all sorts of buildings, and this 'Faith in Place' Green Mosque competition has brought the practice to the religious realm. With the winning entry submitted by Uri Tzarnotzky, Ziya Imren, Onat Oktem and Zeynep Oktem, this exceptional temple embraces the use of recycled materials, low chemical emission adhesives, sealants and paints.

Set to be built in Wisconsin, the 'Faith in Place' Green Mosque complex will house a wide variety of facilities and adhere to environmentally friendly operations beyond its construction, like energy and water efficiency.
