INTRODUCED BY ABDULMALIK MERCHANT

There are numerous videos on the work and important milestones from the life of His Highness the Aga Khan that are in the public domain but unknown to a vast majority of his followers as well as other individuals, organizations and friends of the community who follow the Ismaili Imam’s enormous work. We present for our readers two such videos from the National Building Museum’s extensive library of recordings of lectures, seminars and award ceremonies made at the Museum.

VIDEO SUMMARY OF TWO EVENTS, AGA KHAN AT GALA AND PARTICIPATES IN SYMPOSIUM

The first video is approximately 32 minutes long. It beautifully captures the two day program in which the Aga Khan was presented with the Vincent Scully Award in Washington D.C. on January 25, 2005 and, on the following day, participated in a thoughtful and lively panel discussion on architecture.
