The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was presented by Mawlana Hazar Imam at a ceremony held at the Al Jahili fort in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates on Sunday, 6 November 2016.
The six winners of the 2016 Aga Khan Award for Architecture were announced on 3 October at a press conference held in the United Arab Emirates. The recipient projects — which are in Bangladesh, China, Denmark, Iran, and Lebanon — offer creative responses to contemporary issues such as climate change, connectivity between people, and the challenge of adapting to new contexts.
This ceremony was the culmination of the 13th cycle of the Award, which Mawlana Hazar Imam established in 1977 to identify and encourage building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of communities in which Muslims have a significant presence. Over the past 39 years, prizes have been given to 116 projects across the world, from France to China.
