2010 Aga Khan Award for Architecture - elan: The Guide to Global Muslim CultureBy: Maryam Eskandari

Every three years, the world of architecture gets together to recognize the best projects that have been built. His Royal Highness, the Aga Khan, himself, established The Aga Khan Award for Architecture, the highest award in the field of architecture in 1977. The award is to not only identify and encourage excellence in architecture, but to also push for other forms of intervention and technology particularly in countries where there are a significant amount of Muslims present. This year, the award ceremony took place at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar. Five renowned projects were selected by the Jury: Wadi Hanifa Wetlands, Revitalization of the Hypercentre of Tunis, Madinat Al-Zahra Museum, Ipekyol Textile Factory, and Bridge School.
