Envisioning the world's northmost Islamic Garden for the Aga Khan Foundation


Morean GmbH was commissioned to create this animation for the announcement ceremony in of the Aga Khan Garden in Edmontin which took place in April 2017. The film puts all emphasis on the peacefulness and harmony of this unique place and place of intercultural encounters. We outlined the specific cultural elements in a balanced relationship to each other and the nature, since the park was meant to become a fusion of the inherent characteristics of the North-American nature together with a modern interpretation of Islamic architecture.

The garden opened its gates at the University of Alberta in 2008. It is financed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, which focuses on the physical, social, cultural and economic revitalisation of communities and exchange. The intention of the new park is to renew and deepen the connection between cultures and communities.
