The shortlist of projects in the running for the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA) was announced at an AKAA exhibition hosted in Kazan in the Russian Federation. The 20 shortlisted projects, which include residential, cultural, educational and industrial buildings, as well as public spaces, are located in 16 countries.

The inspiration for the Friendship Centre came from the Buddhist monasteries in the area, and the architectural influences include exposed brickwork, stark character, and a quadrilateral layout.

Can you imagine life in a place where the very ground you stand on is not stable and it is almost routine to see the land sliding into the river when it rains? Where people know their schools, fields, yards, and even their homes are on unstable ground?
