The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat

Built by distinguished Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, this secular building was officially opened in December 2008 by His Highness the Aga Khan and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Delegation serves as the headquarters of Aga Khan Foundation Canada, a non-profit agency that supports social development projects in Asia and Africa. Through the Delegation, the play of light on transparent and translucent surfaces creates a dynamic visual effect. Of special interest: a podium of black Indus granite contrasting with the pure white crystallized glass panels on the exterior of the building; a garden courtyard, an interior atrium covered by a multi-faceted glass dome, Canadian maple throughout.
