The Aga Khan Trust for Culture's parks and gardens attract over 5 million people per year. Over 43 million visitors have visited since they opened.
One million dollars are shared among prize winners, as determined by the independent Master Jury. Half the prize money is a grant for promoting the replicable aspects of the design.
