In today's architectural world, new ideas and agendas often have a very short life. At the beginning some observers thought that at best, your architectural award program would last about six years. Instead, in two decades it has become and remained the most outstanding in the world, and continues to hold that leadership. What were the goals that led you to establish the Award?

The Aga Khan's Dalakhani, ridden by Christophe Soumillon won the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, at Longchamp.
