Canada: Friday Night Reflections – 29 January 2021 (Farsi)
On this Friday Night Reflections episode, we take a deeper look at how architecture serves as an anchor of our identity, extending beyond the structural, functional, and aesthetic, reflecting our traditions, our values, and our aspirations. Host Malika Karim-Rajan sits down with Farrokh Derakhshani, Director of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture for a wide-ranging conversation, exploring the origin and evolution of the Award, and Mawlana Hazar Imam's ongoing work to encourage excellence in architecture as a bedrock for sustainable development. We then travel across the globe to the Ismaili Centre Dushanbe, where architect Farouk Noormohamed shares an exclusive virtual tour of this Pamiri-inspired, architectural jewel.
