Opened in September 2014, Toronto’s new Aga Khan Museum for Islamic art is the first North American museum devoted to the subject. The grounds include an angular structure clad in white granite, reflection pools, and park space designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic. The main building, organized around a central courtyard with patterned screens, includes galleries, educational spaces, an auditorium, and a restaurant.
