The Houston Ismaili Center is a building for the largest Ismaili Muslim community in the United States. Our animation film is being used for public relations and shows the successful combination of contemporary elements with traditional Persian motifs. It invites you to stroll through the wide and bright halls, enjoy a private concert or the views from the verandas, take a walk in the beautiful park and discover spaces for education, contemplation and prayer.


The project was the winner of a 2019 international competition, the planning and design team for the Ismaili Center Houston includes Farshid Moussavi Architecture, Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, DLR Group, and engineering firm AKT II.
