Red Mosque
by Hans-Peter Rathke, Oldenburg, Germany.

This mosque is large -- 57.5 x 57.5 x 65 cm.  The four minarets are 75 cm high; the dome is 11 cubes (27.5 cm) square.  Instead of using long wooden beams not supplied by Richter, AV Rathke bridged the four corners diagonally.  That is a 'purist'.   

The entrance is very interesting.  The shaping of the arch over the doors and the doors themselves takes great imagination.

The four minarets can not have been easy to build.
