View all publications
The Award publishes the proceedings of its international and regional seminars as well as cyclical monographs recording the recipients and discussions of each Award cycle. Most Award publications are available in English; some are also published in Arabic, Turkish, French, and Chinese.

Conserving the documentation of the building projects that have come under consideration has been one of the goals of the Award, and the materials gathered over each three-year Award cycle form the major part of the library and visual collections of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. The visual collections consist of over 350,000 slides, prints and negatives, as well as the special portfolios of Award projects. The library consists of books, information on architects and firms, reports, special case studies, and ongoing subscriptions to architectural periodicals, along with newsletters, bulletins, journals, chronicles and unpublished reports. The library allows interested individuals access to the collections by appointment, and responds to requests for information from external sources.
