Aga Khan Award for Architecture

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established in 1977 to encourage good building practices and enhance Islamic culture as expressed through architecture. Its method is to recognise examples of architectural excellence that encompass concerns as varied as contemporary design, social housing, community improvement and development, restoration, re-use and area conservation, and landscaping and environmental issues. Through its effort, the Award is held every three years and is governed by a Steering Committee chaired by His Highness Aga Khan. Awards totaling up to US$500,000 - the largest architectural prize in the world, are given to projects selected by an independent Master Jury. Since its inception, the Award has recognised almost 100 projects that have set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning, conservation and landscaping design.

Each triennial Award cycle culminates in a prize-giving ceremony that announces the Award recipients to the world. The 2007 Award Ceremony, marking the 30th Anniversary of the award and the completion of its 10th cycle, which is held at the Petronas Twin Towers on 4th September 2007, is in recognition of its iconic status as an international landmark and a symbol of the contemporary Malaysian society.
