Internationally known for her wealth and style, American heiress and philanthropist Doris Duke amassed one of the nation’s most important private collections of Islamic art over a period of more than 50 years beginning in the mid 1930’s. Shangri La, her private residence in Honolulu, melds together modern architecture, tropical landscape and art that Duke collected and commissioned throughout the Muslim world.
