Inauguration of the University of Central Asia Naryn Campus
19 October 2016
The first of three residential campuses for the University of Central Asia was inaugurated today by His Highness the Aga Khan and Prime Minister Sooronbay Jeenbekov of the Kyrgyz Republic.
As of 2017, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture will be 40 years old, making it the oldest major award in the field.
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.
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.
