Our designers were very keen to create water features that not only fitted-in with their immediate surroundings but also reflected the artwork of the global Muslim community – just as the Aga Khan Centre aims to reflect the teaching of the global Muslim community through its educational programs. They were, therefore, heavily influenced by the way water has been used by Muslim designers throughout history, particularly with respect to shapes and patterns, such as this one, which is found throughout the Aga Khan Centre site.
Read this incredible account of how water has been used by the architects and desigers, to create the experience of the Islamic garden.
The Fountain Workshop is a team of dedicated designers, artists and engineers who share a passion for water, and a fascination for how it can enhance, and in many cases completely change an environment.
