Simerg: In the Making: The Aga Khan Museum, The Ismaili Centre and The Park – A Photo Essay

“All in all, the Wynford Drive complex will represent a rich tapestry woven from widely varied strands. As we look ahead, we can anticipate with some confidence that the Wynford Drive project will be a beautiful part of the future — a proud gift from our generation to future generations — even as it celebrates so fittingly what past generations have given to us. …

The Aga Khan Museum will be a place for sharing a story, through art and artifacts, of highly diverse achievements, going back over 1,400 years. It will honor the central place within Islam of the search for knowledge and beauty. And it will illuminate the inspiration which Muslim artists have drawn from faith and from a diverse array of epics, from human stories of separation and loss, of love and joy, themes that we know reverberate eloquently across the diverse cultures of humanity.”

  1. Photo essay – simply amazing! Thanks Jim Bowie and Malik. This should be compiled in a book and displayed at the Museum. The ‘halo’ in the picture is priceless! Well documented.
