The Pristina Central Mosque looks like something out of a sci-fi flick, although the followers of Islam may not appreciate that comparison. The place of worship is quite beautiful to behold. From afar, it looks like a giant hovering bowl that complements the rest of the geometric grounds. Up close, the Pristina Central Mosque is revealed to be an intricate domed structure that has an organically weaved design.

Inspired by themes of cultural heritage, geographical landscapes and more, the Pristina Central Mosque was designed by OODA, a Portuguese based architecture design office. Created as a submission for a competition, it is a monumental form that stands out as a landmark without neglecting its surroundings in the process. It is also sustainable.
