CONCLUDING REMARKS AT THE SEVENTH SEMINAR IN THE SERIES ARCHITECTURAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD OF THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1982-11-05

I should very much like to express, on behalf of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, as well as all of the participants in this seminar and myself personally, our warmest thanks to the President of the Republic of Senegal, Mr. Abdou Diouf, who opened our debates and to Mr. Oumar Welle, Minister of Housing and Urban Planning, who encouraged and aided us in organising the seminar. I would like to take this opportunity to pay homage to the country, to the government and to the Senegalese participants who have all contributed to our having an extremely open, creative and fruitful debate.

OPENING REMARKS AT THE SIXTH SEMINAR IN THE SERIES ARCHITECTURAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD OF THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1981-10-19

I want to begin by saying, quite simply, how delighted we are to be in China. China is a nation we constantly read about and discuss. But for most of us, myself included, it is the first time we have actually seen and visited this fascinating country. For that privilege we are indebted first to our hosts, the Architectural Society of China and especially its charming and most gifted President, Mr Yang Ting-bao.

SPEECH TO THE SWISS-AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE - 1976-01-14

I would like to begin by expressing my appreciation of the opportunity you have given me today to speak in this important city of Europe. The business and financial institutions of Zurich have made it one of the great symbols of private initiative in the industrial world, and I am happy to be able to address you on a subject which extends the horizons of individual enterprise to the developing world.

OPENING REMARKS AT THE FIFTH SEMINAR IN THE SERIES ARCHITECTURAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD OF THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1980-05-04

I would like to begin by thanking His Majesty King Hussein for honouring us by opening our seminar. His participation clearly illustrates Jordan's concern for the evolution of Islamic architecture. I wish to welcome His Majesty most warmly, and to express our great pleasure at this opportunity to hold the fifth seminar of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

SPEECH BY HIS HIGHNESS PRINCE AGA KHAN TO THE ARCHITECTURAL LEAGUES - 1980-04-21

I would like to thank Mr. Barnett for his very generous comments and for the opportunity you have given to me to address this distinguished audience tonight.

OPENING REMARKS AT THE SECOND SEMINAR IN THE SERIES ARCHITECTURAL TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD OF THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1978-09-26

In 1980, the first Aga Khan Award for Architecture will be presented. Prior to that, five seminars are to be held to discuss various criteria and categories for the Award, as well as some of the other mundane aspects of its organization. Though this is the second seminar chronologically, it is the first one to be held in a country of the Islamic world, and I therefore attach particular regard to its participants and importance to its subject matter.

SPEECH BY HIS HIGHNESS PRINCE KARIM AGA KHAN on Economy - 1976-03-02

In selecting the title of this address, I had in mind above all, the need for greater efficiency in professional management. The more I reflected on this subject, the more it became apparent that the themes which I wished develop were as valid for many of the richer industrial nations as for the developing world, and hold good equally for nationalised industries as for the private sector all over the world.

My family and I have been deeply touched by the kindness, courtesy and the welcome of the people of Hyderabad and as you know our family's association and our community's association with Sind is historic in every sense.

SPEECH AT THE TAKHT NASHINI CEREMONY - Bombay - 1958-03-11

I cannot begin this reply to your welcome address without expressing my gratitude to the leaders and governments of this city, of Bombay State and of all India for the kindness with which they have received me. This is a very special occasion for the Ismailis of India, and I speak for them all when I say how much I have appreciated the friendly co-operation which my community has received in the many details of preparation. I would specially like to thank His Excellency the Governor, the Chief Minister and his colleagues, the Chief Justice and the Commissioner of Police.

SPEECH BY HIS HIGHNESS PRINCE KARIM AGA KHAN - 1960-10-01

I shall begin by saying how well I am aware of your needs and necessities in this particular school. I do feel that if we are going to proceed on a fairly large scale of development in the future in our education institutions, we must proceed according to certain plans and standards, and for this reason I will probably advise the City Education Board, not to proceed with any development of this building until we know the result of the negotiations which are taking place at this moment.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE - 1980-10-23

Highlights from the Speech by Hazar Imam at the Award Presentation Ceremony - Shalimar Gardens
-Within life's span, there are days of special happiness, days of pride and days of humility. This is such a day for me. It represents the culmination of a vigorous effort, hope and deep conviction that a significant change can be achieved in the environment in which Muslims live.

SPEECH AT THE DINNER HOSTED BY THE COUNCIL FOR MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE - 1983-01-09

It is a great pleasure for my wife and I to be in Singapore again and to see for ourselves what tremendous developments have taken place here over the last few years. Your government, Mr. Rajaratnam, deserves congratulations for the economic miracle you have achieved, in spite of the recession in the industrialized countries.

THE AGA KHAN REPLYING TO WELCOME ADDRESS - 1970-01-18

Each time I visit Pakistan, My heart warms to growing memories and to a store house of recollections.
