Architect has created greenest mosque in Europe after winning competition in 2007
Marks Barfield Architects has completed Cambridge New Mosque, the city’s first purpose-built Islamic place of worship.
The practice won a limited international competition in 2007 to land the project which turned out to be one of practice co-founder David Marks’ last. He died in 2017 aged 64.
Marks was the driving force behind the design concept, saying: “We didn’t want to create a replica or pastiche of something that existed elsewhere. The opportunity to do something English, British, excited us. Now that there is a significant Muslim community it’s time to work out what it means to have an English mosque.”
