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. The current prize fund totals US$ 1,000,000 and is presented to projects selected by an independent master jury. The Award has completed 13 cycles of activity since 1977, and documentation has been compiled on over 8,000 building projects throughout the world. This exhibition will present the projects shortlisted for the 2019 Award. The associated event - a panel discussion will highlight current issues in architecture and urbanism, and how these projects respond to those issues.
