Overview

Designed by Morijama & Teshima Architects and built in 1963, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre was a signal that the Japanese Canadian community was claiming a place within Canada's cultural mosaic. The building received international attention for the way it combined a modernist sensibility with details and proportions reminiscent of Japanese building traditions. After the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre moved out of the building, Moriyama & Teshima Architects was responsible for transforming the building into The Noor Cultural Centre, an Islamic cultural centre, introducing subtle details that allude to Islamic building traditions. The building of the centre was funded by Toronto's Lakhani family and it now serves as a hub for education and dialogue on Islam and other world faiths. Islamic studies activities at the centre are organized in consultation with York University faculty thanks to a fellowship sponsored by the Lakhani family. The centre is located in Don Mills at 123 Wynford Drive, and is open Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm.
