This is an excerpt of the specch made by MHI on the occasion of its ground breaking ceremony.

"The Delegation will serve a representational role for the Imamat and its non-denominational, philanthropic and development agencies which constitute the Aga Khan Development Network – the AKDN. An open, secular facility, the Delegation will be a sanctuary for peaceful, quiet diplomacy, informed by the Imamat’s outlook of global convergence and the development of civil society. It will be an enabling venue for fruitful public engagements, information services and educational programmes, all backed up by high quality research, to sustain a vibrant intellectual centre, and a key policy-informing institution."

The complete speech can be referenced at:

http://www.akdn.org/speeches/2005June6.html

The following is an excerpt of the Governor General's remarks on the occasion.

"This leadership will assume a physical form here in Canada. This building will be an intellectual centre for the development network that you have founded and nurtured. I'm reminded of the old Latin proverb that progress comes from "spurring a willing horse". It means finding an event that was waiting to happen, or a group or even a nation that was ready to act, and jumpstarting them with a jolt of material and intellectual force. This place represents such an infusion of energy, and I am sure that it will move development efforts forward."

A secretariat is an administrative centre whereas the Imamat Delegation will be an intellectual and diplomatic centre where ideas and approaches to development issues will be generated, promoted and exchanged.

Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat

Client: Fumihiko Maki and Associates Moriyama & Teshima Architects

Country: Canada

Role: Structural glass design; building envelope services; full structural engineering services

The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat is an elegant two-storey building containing meeting rooms, exhibition areas, an atrium, a resource centre and offices for the Aga Khan Foundation Canada and other agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network.

The Aga Khan’s vision of rock-crystal, was captured in the building’s design through features such as the large glass roof projecting from the centre. The 8570m² facility is configured as an elongated, rectangular ring surrounding an interior atrium and an exterior courtyard.

Halcrow Yolles was retained for the challenging structural glass and building envelope design for the feature glazed elements. The complex roof design not only had to span 25 metres, but also had to resist the force of wind and be strong enough to bear the weight of 40 tonnes of glass and snow loads. The resulting design is an innovative all-in-one system in which a grid of solid steel bars is braced with tension rods below. The glass panels attach to the grid with silicone.

In addition to these services, Halcrow Yolles provided full structural engineering services for this distinguished building.

Nice images at:

THE DELEGATION OF THE ISMAILI IMAMAT
Fri , 13 May 2011

The Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat is located on a prominent site along the banks of the Ottawa River designated as “Confederation Boulevard,” a ceremonial route on Sussex Drive in Canada’s Capital City. Known as “the Mile of History” the boulevard is established with major national institutions including Parliament Hill, the Governor General and Prime Minister’s residences, civic and cultural facilities together with a number of embassies. Rich in tradition, this beautiful site provides the setting for a secular facility that establishes a formal and symbolic presence for His Highness the Aga Khan, the 49th hereditary Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims and his institutions in Canada.

The mission of the building is to share the best of Islamic life and its spiritual dimensions with the heritage and cultures of the West. It will be a place where dialogue, intellectual exchange, and new partnerships will be fostered with the Canadian government, the private sector as well as with many other countries to engage in humanitarian programs to achieve a better world.
