As you drive along the DVP here in Toronto, and if you are near Eglington Ave you can not help but notice the construction of Toronto’s latest museum: The Aga Khan Museum.
Construction has been going on for some time now and the museum will open later this year.

I am excited about this museum being part of the rich cultural life of Toronto. I am excited about what it will bring and what we will be able to learn within its walls: to see the artifacts, and to see all the different forms of Islamic Art at it’s finest.
But right now I have been following their social media feed on Facebook and I wanted to share just a glimpse of the beauty that is apart of the architecture.
and look at this beautiful play on light in the courtyard:
