ABOUT THE EVENT

A gift of the ruling family of Dubai to HH the Agha Khan, The Ismaili Centre, Dubai was conceived in an effort to complement evolutions in technology and urban development with a long-established endeavour to revitalise the traditions of architecture, craftsmanship and landscape design in the Islamic world.

Respecting a history of tolerance and openness, Egyptian architects Rami El-Dahan and Soheir Farid sought inspiration from the Fatimid mosques of Cairo. Maintaining their focus on the human scale and the recent past, they also drew on the insights of a mentor, the late Hassan Fathy, renowned in the 20th century for his building in clay and for his "architecture for the people.
