      Futuristic designs for an Islamic centre and mosque near the site of the
      September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York have been unveiled to
      widespread expert acclaim.

      The sketches showed a 16-storey building wrapped in a honeycomb of abstract

      The building was compared by some to the Fortress of Solitude, the
      crystalline headquarters of Superman depicted in comic books.

      Others suggested that some of the shapes resembled the Jewish symbol of the
      Star of David. The company behind the development pointed out that the
      hexagram is also used in Islam, as the Seal of Solomon, as well as in
      Christianity and other religions.

      Sharif El-Gamal, the developer, said: "We want to have a marriage between
      Islamic architecture and New York City. We want to do something that is
      green and cool."

      The proposed Islamic centre, two blocks from the site of the World Trade
      Centre attacks, has created widespread controversy in the United States.

      The designs suggest it will have four floors taken up by a sports, fitness
      and swimming centre.

      There will also be a child care centre, a restaurant, culinary school, art
      studios, exhibition space and auditorium.

      The prayer space for Muslims will be on two levels in the basement, and the
      12th floor will have a 9/11 memorial and sanctuary open to people of all
