Participants enroute, via boat, to the Arcadia Education Project. The school, which won the 2019 Award, is an amphibious structure, built on land, that is flood-prone.

It’s a cool and damp morning at a school in South Kanarchor, on the outskirts of Dhaka. As the children break for recess, they’re greeted by the sight of six young visitors, approaching the school by boat. The children clamour around the bamboo railings excitedly. Nestled in the heart of South Kanarchor is the Arcadia Education Project, one of the winners of the 2019 cycle of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA). Built on land that floods regularly, the amphibious structure is an innovative solution that responds to climate, context, and community. And that’s exactly what the visitors were there to learn about.

Aga Khan Foundation’s touring exhibit, In a Heartbeat, will be displayed at the Ismaili Centre from September 27th to November 20th. In this interactive exhibit, visitors meet six women in Asia and Africa who are leading the way to better health for their communities.

In January 2019, an independent Master Jury reviewed hundreds of nominations for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. A rigorous process in which a team of experts investigate each of the 20 shortlisted projects is now underway.
