The Aga Khan Award
thru April 28, 2017

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is given every three years to projects that set new
standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and
landscape architecture. Through its efforts, the Award seeks to identify and encourage
building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of societies across
the world, in which Muslims have a significant presence. An emphasis is placed on
projects that address pluralistic communities and bringing together diverse populations.
As Shiraz Allibhai, Deputy Director of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, puts it, the Award
“serves people, serves community.”

Free and open to the public.
