The world's first 3D-printed mosque opens in Jeddah



The news comes just in time for Ramadan. 

When we talk about Saudi Arabia's rapid development, it's not an exaggeration. Riyadh has been buzzing with activity, and now Jeddah has captured global attention with an unprecedented architectural achievement. The Red Sea city proudly unveiled the world's first 3D-printed mosque, which was constructed entirely using 3D printing technology. 

Nestled in Al-Jawhara, this mosque serves as a remarkable testament to innovation, commitment, and respect. Named after the late Abdulaziz Abdullah Sharbatly, a respected figure in Saudi society, the mosque stands as a tribute from his wife, Wajnat Abdulwahed. 

Spanning over 5,600 square meters, the mosque's design marries tradition with contemporary flair. Its white marble-like exterior, adorned with curved arches and complemented by lush greenery and water features, stands as a beacon of architectural excellence. 

The open outdoor area serves as an extension for worshippers during Friday prayers, Taraweeh prayers in Ramadan, and Eid celebrations. Inside, simplicity meets elegance, with white walls, chandeliers, and plush green carpeting, creating a serene space for worship and reflection. 

The 3D-printed mosque was made using cutting-edge 3D printers from Guanli, a renowned Chinese manufacturer, but the construction was not without its challenges. The intricacies of 3D printing technology demanded precision and expertise, and through meticulous planning and dedication, the team overcame obstacles, ensuring the essence of traditional mosque architecture remained intact.

The completion of the world's first 3D-printed mosque in Jeddah highlights Saudi Arabia's commitment to technological advancement and paves the way for a more sustainable and technologically driven future.
