EAST SETAUKET, N.Y./ JANUARY 09, 2019 (STL.News)
Completed in December 2018, the new Maksem Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey, used Penetron crystalline technology to secure the above-ground and below-grade concrete structures from the area’s high-water table.
Taksim Square, located in Beyoğlu on the European side of Istanbul, is a major tourist area well-known for its restaurants, shops, and hotels, and is considered the center of modern Istanbul. Plans to erect a mosque at Taksim Square had been discussed for decades, with supporters arguing there are not enough Muslim places of worship close to one of the city’s busiest hubs.
