BBC Radio – The British Mosque

Radio 4 - The British Mosque

This is a BBC Radio 4 programme which was broadcast on Friday, which discusses the debates among architects involved in British mosque design, which actually has practices dedicated to it. On one side are those who favour traditional features such as minarets, while others say a building can have a much more modernist approach and still be perfectly valid as mosque architecture. There is an interview with Yusuf Mangera, who belongs to the latter school and is involved in the Abbey Mills “Olympic” mosque project. (The programme avoids the political aspects of that project.)

(See this earlier entry for more on the Abbey Mills project and the objections to it.)
