Aga Khan Centre A place of education, knowledge, cultural exchange and insight into Muslim civilisations, the Aga Khan Centre brings meeting rooms, an exhibition space and a library in one building which spans across 10 floors . Designed primarily as an academic building for teaching and research, the organisations based at the centre in King's Cross work to increase understanding of Muslim civilisations and improve the quality of life of some of the world's most disadvantaged communities. The building design, by world-renowned Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, includes six landscaped open spaces - roof gardens, terraces and courtyards - collectively called the 'Islamic Gardens at King's Cross'.
