2015 Djamaâ el Djazaïr – the Great Mosque of Algiers
In addition to businesses, the various wings in the building also house a Koranic school, university, cultural centre, museum and much more. A three-level underground garage for 4,000 cars is located under the esplanade. At 265 m, the minaret will be the highest in the world.
This impressive building imposes highly demanding requirements on its structural components. The Calenberg Ciparall sliding bearings installed need to accommodate long glide paths up to 75 cm long. The very low coefficients of friction ensure that the incorporated structural components slide virtually free of any friction. In turn, this reduces the shear stress on the sub-structure, allowing an inexpensive, filigree edifice to be built.
