His Highness the Aga Khan receives the Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship
21 September 2016
At a ceremony in Toronto, the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson presented His Highness the Aga Khan with the inaugural Adrienne Clarkson Prize for Global Citizenship.
As of 2017, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture will be 40 years old, making it the oldest major award in the field.
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.
116 projects have received the award over the last 40 years, often anticipating innovations, such as green buildings, or reflecting architectural discourse, such as a return to human scale.
