SPEECH AT THE PRESENTATION CEREMONY OF THE FIFTH AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1992-09-19

Your Excellency the Governor Pulat Majidovich, Your Excellencies, Honourable Ministers, Distinguished guests

It is with delight and appreciation that I open in the city of Samarkand, this fifth prize giving ceremony of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. To be able to join with all of you to celebrate architectural excellence in this magnificent setting, a setting of unrivalled importance to the history of architecture in the Muslim world, is the realization -- for me -- of a long cherished hope for the Award and its mission.

REVITALIZATION PROGRAMME OF HISTORIC CORE OF SAMARKAND - 1990-05-01
