The Aga Khan Awards for Architecture: Design can change the world

21 January 2021

A recent online symposium and website by the University of Toronto (UoT) showcased winners of the most recent Aga Khan Awards for Architecture (AKAA). Each of the six winners feature an awareness of local climate and sensitivity to local culture, as well as artful composition. The AKAA send a "field reviewer" to report on the ground. Aziza Chaouni, a UoT Professor said in the symposium: "The most important job was to assess the impact of this project on the users and the immediate environment". The AKAA are different. They have always recognised landscape and heritage preservation alongside architecture.
