The Aga Khan Award for Architecture: Ecological Resiliency and Recovery

19 March 2021

On 23 March, an online meeting will take place to discuss ecological resiliency and recovery in the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA), one of the three dominant themes that emerged, and which define, the winners of the AKAA 2017-2019 cycle. The panel will explore themes of innovative sustainable design, positive environmental legacy of buildings, and how best practices from the 2019 AKAA winners can be applied to local context. More than ever, the conventional practice of architecture faces a crisis of relevance. Recognition in the profession remains globally centred, based on a handful of lavish commissions that produce aesthetically pleasing objects.
