Our latest publication, The Mosque in the City: Bradford and its Islamic Architecture, by George Sheeran, has just been published!
This is the first study of the architecture of the mosque in Bradford and its impact on the cityscape. Both purpose-built mosques and the conversion of existing buildings to mosques are considered, together with an explanation of the key architectural and religious features. There is also a discussion of the cultural effects of Islam and a historical comparison with other faith groups that have settled in Bradford and the impact this has had on the urban environment.
