The limestone-clad building – which is topped by Islamic roof gardens – provides academic, archive and office spaces arranged around a central atrium

The Aga Khan Centre in London, which opens in the autumn, is the first building in the city to be designed by Maki & Associates, led by 89-year-old Pritzker Prize-winner Fumihiko Maki. The design is intended to reflect the centre’s values of ’openness, dialogue and respect for pluralism’, inspired by Islam. Allies and Morrison was executive architect for the project.
