An Islamic garden in Canada evokes a unique dialogue between modernity and originality

6 April 2021

The 4,8-hectare Aga Khan Garden, which is one of the most comprehensive and first of its kind in the far north-west of the world, goes beyond its natural role as a place of rest and recreation, to act as a unique art gallery that reflects an aspect of the classical Islamic architecture blended in harmony with contemporary Canadian architecture of the Alberta region. Through its charming atmosphere and stunning natural and artistic elements, the Garden seeks to play an important and pivotal role in creating a new and calm social space that brings together people of different nationalities, races, and cultures, in a country known for its cultural and social pluralism. It invites all people to communicate, discuss, reflect, participate, and think together in the future of human civilisation.
