In a profession crowded with prizes, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture remains one of the world’s most significant and influential honors. Established in 1977 by His Highness the Aga Khan, the awards, which are given every three years, shine a light on parts of the globe that are often overlooked by Western critics and professionals. The prizes focus on projects that have an impact on communities with Muslim populations and histories, often in underserved areas. Contenders for the award can be new buildings or adaptive re-use, landscape and urban design projects.
