BSA: The Aga Khan Award for Architecture – Origins and Impact
January 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1977 to identify and encourage building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of communities in which Muslims have a significant presence. The Award recognizes examples of architectural excellence in the fields of contemporary design, social housing, community improvement and development, historic preservation, reuse and area conservation, as well as landscape design and improvement of the environment.
In celebration of the 2017-2019 cycle, themed around Architecture in Dialogue, this panel of previous conveners, steering committee, and master jury members will explore the origins of the AKAA and its worldwide impact throughout its 42-year history.
