The British Mosque: An Architectural and Social History

The British Mosque: An Architectural and Social History

Asia House Arts and Learning have organised an event to showcase Author, Shahed Saleem’s latest book. This book is the first of its kind giving an overview of Muslim architecture in Britain from the late 19th century to mosques in today’s modern world.

The book signifies culture as well as going in detail of how new buildings have impacted urban landscape, socially, culturally and architecturally. Saleem, having worked as an architect, researcher and lecturer, believes we can use mosque architecture to combine elements of British and Muslim identity and therefore creating designs connected with both communities with the surroundings as inspiration. Shahed says, “we do have to generate our own architectural language which reflects our European Muslim identity.”

For more information about the event, please see below.
