By creating a video that puts all emphasis on the peacefulness and harmony of this unique place...
... and by outlining all cultural elements in a balanced relationship: the inherent characteristics of the North-American nature together with a modern interpretation of Islamic architecture.
A spectacular new garden will bloom in 2018 at the University of Alberta. New opportunities for friendship and collaboration between the University of Alberta, Edmonton and the Ismaili Muslim Community. The garden is financed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, which focuses on the physical, social, cultural and economic revitalisation of communities in the developing world. The intention of the new park is to renew and deepen the connection between a variety of cultures and communities.
