Just google it. It is insane. 

I'm a bit torn on it though. On the one hand it is so breathtaking that I could see it still admired as an architectural marvel in 400 years.

On the other hand it looks not even remotely like its architecture belongs into the year 2007, or whatever 15th Century year the muslim calendar that is.

Imagine someone building a new cathedral and choosing to build it completely in gothic style. I would consider that bad taste and a lack of imagination.

Architecture of sacral buildings has evolved, so why would someone build a mosque in a style that was modern 1300 years ago?

Here is what I mean: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faisal_Mosque#/media/File:The_Shah_Faisal_Mosque,_Islamabad.jpg

That is a mosque that looks like it belongs into the time it was build in.

 

If only our post modernist architects would take note. London is a collection of eye sores.

Couldn't agree more. That carphone walkie-talkie monstrosity would look better if it fell into the Thames. Hideous.

Postmodernism is the worst or one of the worse trends in design and architecture. Things that make no sense, odd mashup of styles. Bothers me plenty.
