The Aga Khan Museum is one component of a two-building complex currently being planned for an important location 15 minutes north of downtown Toronto. The entire complex will consist of a new prayer hall by the architect Charles Correa, the Aga Khan Museum by Maki and Associates, and a formal Islamic garden by the landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic.

is this the same museums for which the aga khan came on visit on december 5 2008
Danish, that’s not the same building.
Imam talks about three buildings of importance in his latest speech.
“This is the third important new Canadian building with which I will have been associated over the last five years. It affirms our intent to share, within a western setting, the best of Islamic life and heritage. This new Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat, like the Ismaili Centre and the Aga Khan Museum to be built in Toronto, reflects our conviction that buildings can do more than simply house people and programmes. They can also reflect our deepest values, as great architecture captures esoteric thought in physical form.”
I’m looking forward to the opening in 2013 of this extraordinary object of art and culture that is going to be a special asset to our city for many years to come.
In the meantime I would like to get in touch with the selecting committee to suggest a certain object that would probably fit well in the new museum.
