Amanda Levete’s practice has won an invited competition for a new mosque at the Foster & Partners-designed World Trade Centre in Abu Dhabi.

The mosque will cover 2,000sq m and is set within a park. AL_A director Ho-Yin Ng said: “The mosque and the garden become one, with the trees and the columns forming an informal vertical landscape and allowing Friday prayers to spill outside.”

The World Trade Centre covers 700,000sq m and includes offices, residential, a shopping mall and hotel. It is being developed by Aldar Properties.
