The Aga Khan Park has been awarded Silver and Bronze prizes in the categories of “public” and “gardens,” respectively, under the discipline of Landscape Architecture during the inaugural awarding of the annual American Architecture Prize.
On October 3, 2016, the American Architecture Prize jury announced the winning designs in over 40 categories across the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture. Each design was evaluated for its characteristics of form, function, and innovation.
The Aga Khan Park, which opened in May of 2015, was designed by Lebanese landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic in partnership with the Toronto-based Moriyama & Teshima Planners, an internationally renowned design firm specializing in landscape architecture and urban design. Uniting the Aga Khan Museum and the Ismaili Centre, Toronto, the 17-acre Park displays natural geometry through its five reflective pools and the ordered planting of serviceberry trees that flow seamlessly into a perimeter of emerald cedar hedges.
