Ismaili Center in Toronto is topped with a stunning angular glass dome
The building is located near the existing Aga Khan Museum, designed by Fumihiko Maki, and is surrounded by a seven-hectare park designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic. It has curving stone walls and is topped with a large glass structure that brings natural light into the interior. The angular glass dome shelters the central space of the building which functions as the prayer hall. This space is located behind a pool of water surrounded by trees.
