About this Event
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture returns for its 42nd year, celebrating the relationship between architecture and quality of life. Twenty shortlisted projects – ranging from a university building in Senegal to a prototype water harvesting system in Ethiopia, from a fish market in Oman to a library in Indonesia – demonstrate the impact of architecture on quality of life whilst also looking at the challenges brought about by globalisation, inequity, socio-technological change, climate and ecological changes and displacement.
The panel discussion features Award director Farrokh Derakhshani as well as notable guests Hanif Kara (Award Steering Committee), Seif El Rashidi (The Barakat Trust) and Tamara Horbacka (London Borough for Barking and Dagenham). They will explore this year’s finalists and the impact that their work is having on the surrounding environment.
The Aga Khan Foundation is an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network, and is one of the world’s leading international development organisations, dedicated to improving quality of life in the developing world.
