About Book

New York Times
The Aga Khan Awards for Architecture...have created a dynamic forum for defining architecture's place in the global culture.

Book Description
The Aga Kahn Award for Architecture was established in 1977 to encourage and bring to international attention the work of architects and designers building in Islamic societies. Previous winners of the award, which is given every three years, include such architects as Balkrishna Doshi, Ken Yeang, Jean Nouvel, Charles Correa, and Hassan Fathy, whose work is highly acclaimed around the world. Projects are nominated and documented by architects, planners, or development teams and clients, including commercial companies, communities, and private individuals. For this year's award, the jury includes architects Zaha Hadid and Arata Isozaki, critic Frederic Jameson, and Algerian theorist Mohammed Arkoun. The seven projects they have chosen are among the most timeless, fascinating, and thoughtful work produced anywhere. Each of the winning projects is profiled and illustrated in depth, and critical essays consider the challenges and rewards confronting architects working in Islamic areas.
