School for Syrian refugees and Qatari cultural project in running
John McAslan & Partners and a small charity specialising in supporting vulnerable communities are the only two British architects shortlisted for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2019.
Altogether 20 projects have been shortlisted for the $1m prize. A team of specialists will visit each scheme before reporting back to this year’s jury which includes David Chipperfield and Elizabeth Diller.
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is one of the oldest major architectural awards. It selects projects globally that not only exhibit architectural excellence, but also improve the overall quality of life in communities in which Muslims have a significant presence.
