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.
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.
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.
