The New Cambridge Mosque: Negotiating Tradition and Transformation in British Muslim Architecture
(Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2016)

Come to our event to hear about the new Cambridge mosque on Mill Road, and its wider context of tradition and transformation in British Muslim architecture.

Our expert panel will offer a series of insights into the historical developments, meanings and state engagement pertaining to mosques on the national level, and a consideration of questions of design, functionality and space at the new Cambridge mosque, described as ‘Europe’s first eco-mosque’.

Panel line-up:

Shahed Saleem, Mosque architect, Lecturer at the University of Westminster, and author of the forthcoming “The British Mosque, a social and architectural history”
Linda Monckton, Historic Environment Intelligence Analyst for Social Impacts, Historic England
David Marks, Co-founder, Marks Barfield Architects, and architect of the new Cambridge Mosque
Tim Winter, Shaykh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge and Secretary of the Muslim Academic Trust, the charity for the new Cambridge mosque

The event format comprises panel presentations before a period of panel discussion and audience Q&A.
