Over 9,000 building projects have been documented and are now available on archnet.org. They range from rural schools to urban water towers, from state-of-the-art skyscrapers to modest mud-brick structures.
Over 2 million students benefit from AKDN education programmes annually. Programmes range from early childhood development to primary and secondary schools, from vocational studies to university degrees.
As of 2017, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture will be 40 years old, making it the oldest major award in the field.
