Excerpt from www.agakhanmuseum.org: Across from the Aga Khan Museum is the Ismaili Centre Toronto, designed by renowned architect Charles Correa. The Centre incorporates spaces for social and cultural gatherings, intellectual engagement and for spiritual reflection. Its crystalline frosted glass dome roof, which marks the highest point of the 6.8-hectare site, is mirrored in the five granite-lined pools of the formal gardens — designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic — which are part of a landscaped park. The Aga Khan Park connects the Centre with the Museum and provides a place equally suited to tranquil reflection and dynamic programming.

Excerpt from ismailimail.wordpress.com: Made entirely of glass and connected with a structural skeleton of steel, the roof has no pillars to support it, except for the peripheral structure of the building. Considering the harsh Canadian winters and the varying climate of the four seasons that the building has to withstand, the importance of the roof to withstand all these pressures while protecting the building and the devotees inside during prayer times becomes even more pronounced.

The roof is one giant skylight, white in color and translucent in nature. It is double skinned with pressurized air in between to provide a controlled temperate climate inside the building. The outside “glass skin” consists of 7 planes, while inside the “glass skin” consists of 30-40 different planes. These varying contortions create an interesting effect with light giving the roof distinct colors.
