2015-05-29 In late May, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne officially inaugurated the Aga Khan Park, a landscaped green space that encompasses the area between and around the Aga Khan Museum and the Ismaili Centre. The Park, the Museum, and the Centre together form Toronto’s newest cultural hub.
His Highness the Aga Khan joined Premier Wynne at the opening of the Park, which has become the site for a number of cultural, educational and social programs designed to foster intercultural dialogue and the exchange of ideas. The Park, created by Lebanon-based landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, unites two buildings designed by renowned architects: the Ismaili Centre by Indian architect Charles Correa, and the Aga Khan Museum by Fumihiko Maki of Japan. Moriyama and Teshima are the Canadian architects of record for the entire project.
