The Aga Khan Centre was inaugurated in King’s Cross, London, by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales at an inauguration ceremony hosted by His Highness the Aga Khan in June.
The Aga Khan Centre (AKC) is the new UK home for several education and development institutions founded by His Highness the Aga Khan. Designed primarily as an academic building for teaching and research, the organisations based at Aga Khan Centre work to increase understanding of Muslim civilisations and improve the quality of life of some of the world’s most disadvantaged communities.
The building design, by world-renowned Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, represents openness, dialogue and respect for diverse viewpoints. A series of roof gardens, terraces and courtyards – the ‘Islamic Gardens at King’s Cross’ – showcase the diversity of Muslim cultures through landscape architecture.
The Centre will be open to the public 22 September 2018. More information is available
