CHARLES CORREA’S ISLAMIC CULTURAL CENTRE NOW SHARES SPACE WITH THE AGA KHAN MUSEUM

ISMAILICENTRE4The new Ismaili Centre for TORONTO’s Islamic community has risen adjacent to the Aga Khan Museum, 77 Wynford Drive. Indian firm Charles Correa Associates designed the cultural centre in partnership with TORONTO’s Moriyama & Teshima Architects. It sits in a seven-hectare park designed by Lebanese landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic.
