AKDN: Preschool to university

9,000 projects
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
116 projects have received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture over the last 40 years, often anticipating innovations, such as green buildings, or reflecting architectural discourse, such as a return to human scale.
5 million
Each year, in collaboration with its partners, the AKDN provides 5 million people with quality health care, including through outpatient visits and community health programmes.
