islamic architecture of mosques
hello everyone!

i am recently compiling a research paper and my question is how will the future architecture of mosques in Dubai and London affect the society and Islmic architecture as a whole?
the modern mosques is the one in Dubai which is called the WATERSIDE mosque,you can find it on google by typing moskee in dubai.
the second one is the strasbourg mosque in london by zaha hadid, you can also find that on google
and the third one is called the olympic mosque which is goin to be built in later in u.k
these are all architectural concepts and have not been built yet but have been designed.
however i would like to have all your assistance on how i can approach the question and what issues i should bring up. i would sincerely appreciate your responses
thaking you in advance

hi muslim!

the strasbourg mosque (great mosque of strasbourg) by zaha hadid was projected
for strasbourg/france (dept. alsace).
the other projekt for london, which looks like a zaha hadids is projected for the new international islamic centre london.
this is a project of mengara ivars architects.

hi muslim!

the foundation of the mosque in strasbourg, france was in 2004. the building is not finished yet. what i know shurly, it is not built after zaha hadids design. i cannot say, if the muslim community had not agreed with it
or the urbanic planners of strasbourg. what i know, i read it in a newspaper of my city of birth: the parliament of the city has allowed a dome but no minaret.
the finishing of this mosque depends on financing it.
in germany there are always problems with the normal mosques with all their icons. an architect, very important for churches of the 20th century had designed a mosque for DITIB in Cologne.
his churches are very innovative, but the mosque was not. the floating mosque or zahas design and a design of another
architect in this competition for the DITIB - mosque were more innovative than
the chosen by the jury.
and the people of Cologne - the non-muslim - does not agree with the majestic dome and the high minarets.
try this about Cologne:

in autumn i will visit strasbourg. this is about 200 kms from my home. possibly i can tell you more about strassbourg - mosque under construction.
about strassbourg - mosque of zaha hadid try this (tradition vs. innovation).
