Diversity and Pluralism in Architectural Practice

Diversity and Pluralism in Architectural Practice
At the Cutting Edge: A Retro-Prospective of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture
by Professor Hasan-Uddin Khan
in collaboration with Aga Khan Council for the Southeastern United States
The geographical, typological, and disciplinary diversity of the nominated, shortlisted, and awarded projects distinguishes the Aga Khan Awards. The 13 cycles (1980-2016) have unfolded across three continents: Asia, Africa, and Europe. The range of built projects awarded test the constraints of an architecture narrowly understood. They challenge us toward a more capacious understanding of the designed, built, and lived environment.

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established to identify and promote exemplary buildings and public spaces that, when replicated, could improve the quality of life. The Award is given every three years to projects that set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and landscape architecture. Attention is given to building schemes that use local resources and appropriate technology in innovative ways, and to projects likely to inspire similar efforts elsewhere.

The KSU Lecture Series focuses on cultural differences and global diversity in Architecture and the built environment. It is a forum that promotes spatial equity through which we connect and learn from one another.
