The Aga Khan Museum

Toronto a couple of weeks ago.

Courtyard    ...Architect Fumihiko Maki used light as his inspiration.

Exquisite treasures in the Aga Khan museum


The Aga Khan museum is a museum for the modern age. Opened in 2014 it is thrilling in its design and layout.

Every inch of it is so peaceful, presenting an arresting collection of Islamic art and modern pieces from Iran. All are thoughtfully curated and accessible!

A real treat.
I was luck enough to actually be working there, a thoughtful client has booked us into a lovely room which the museum hires out for business meetings and such.

This is a house of treasures and so incredibly calm. Strikingly absent were the noisy throngs, intent on buffeting their way to the gift shop, common in London's museums.

When you are lucky enough to be in Toronto . . .
