Abstract:In the past few years mosques in London are moving away from their primary function and are becoming more than just religious buildings. They take up other community orientated roles, becoming important centres for local Muslims, through the provision of services, such as recreational and cultural activities, advice and counselling, training and so on. This takes us back to the original types of the mosque in traditional Islamic societies. Unlike traditional uniform Islamic societies though, in which the mosque was born and established, London is a multi-faith diverse urban environment. This raises the question about the reasons why certain mosques should take up certain roles for certain communities. This study will try to identify these reasons, by looking at the primary function of the mosque and later on the context of their surrounding community, in order to examine whether it is possible to use the results of this identification to predict whether this particular kind of building can have a positive impact on urban regeneration.
