Around six kilometers from the historical center of the Algerian capital, Algiers, a sanctuary of superlatives is growing into the sky. The Djamaa el Djazair – the third largest mosque in the world – is being built on a good 26 hectares directly in the Bay of Algiers. Only the two pilgrimage sites in Mecca and Medina are larger. The supporting elements of the imposing structure are 618 columns made of spun concrete, produced in the concrete pole factory at the FUCHS Europoles headquarters in Neumarkt. The spun concrete columns, which are up to 36 meters high, characterize a structure for eternity that is second to none.
