1. Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2010
    Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2010
    Implicate & Explicate

    Edited by Mohsen Mostafavi

    The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1977 to identify and encourage excellence in architecture and other forms of intervention in the built environment of societies with Muslim presence. The award is given every three years and recognizes all types of building projects that affect today’s built environment. Smaller projects are given equal consideration as large-scale buildings.

    The book presents the shortlist of nineteen projects, including the five award recipients. In their variety across culturally diverse areas of the globe, what these projects have in common is a commitment to design excellence despite constraints of budget, resources, climate, technology, or politics.

    With essays by Omar Abdulaziz Hallaj, Salah M. Hassan, Gökhan Karakus, Yu Kongjian, Hanif Kara, Farshid Moussavi, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Alice Rawsthorn
