National Geographic: The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque 2011
National Geographic: The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque: For over 12 years, more than 2500 people have been working at temperatures above 40 degrees centigrade, on a project thatís intended to become a national icon. The construction of the Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is destined to be the biggest mosque in the United Arab Emirates. The construction is a huge multi-national undertaking bringing together designers, features, materials and suppliers from nearly every corner of the globe: Italy, Germany, Morocco, India, Turkey, Iran, China, Greece and the UAE. The final result is nothing short of spectacular, not only in sheer size, but also in architectural and creative beauty; this is not just a mega structure but an artistic statement on a massive scale.
