One of my other stops during Doors Open weekend was the Delegation for the Ismaili Imamat. This is the headquarters for the Aga Khan Foundation's Canadian branch, designed by architect Fumihiko Maki. The foundation was established by the spiritual leader of the Ismaili branch of Islam, and works on humanitarian issues around the world with an emphasis on education. This is a relatively new building, having been opened in 2008.
The concept of the design lets in a lot of light into the central atrium particularly, creating fascinating shadow effects with the screens hanging around this area. These screens incorporate geometric designs and while they do bear weight, seem weightless. I have more from this place over the next two days.
