Kareem Ibrahim is an Egyptian architect and urban researcher who worked on UNDP’s Historic Cairo Rehabilitation Project and on the Darb al-Ahmar project, one of Cairo’s most ambitious urban revitalisation programmes. Between 2010 and 2017, he worked as Senior Development Manager for one of Cairo’s largest real estate development projects. Currently, he is the CEO of Takween Integrated Community Development and the Director of the “Rediscovering Esna’s Cultural Heritage Assets” project, which is aimedat the revitalisation of the city centre of one of Upper Egypt’s historic cities.

She has also worked with Charles Correa Associates on several projects, including the Brain and Cognitive Sciences building at MIT. As Director of the Charles Correa Foundation, she is involved in research, publications and projects focused on the improvement of the built habitat.


Once the Master Jury selects a shortlist, the shortlisted projects are then subjected to rigorous on- site reviews by independent experts, most of them architects, conservation specialists, planners or structural engineers. The Jury meets for a second time in summer 2019 to examine the on-site reviews and select the final recipients of the Award.

The selection process emphasises architecture that not only provides for people’s physical, social and economic needs, but that also stimulates and responds to their cultural aspirations. Particular attention is given to building schemes that use local resources and appropriate technology in innovative ways and to projects likely to inspire similar efforts elsewhere.

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is governed by a Steering Committee chaired by
His Highness the Aga Khan. The other members of the Steering Committee are: Sir David Adjaye, Principal Adjaye Associates, London; Mohammad al-Asad, Founding Director, Center for the Study of the Built Environment, Amman; Emre Arolat, Founder, EAA- Emre Arolat Architecture, New York-London-Istanbul; Francesco Bandarin, Special Advisor, UNESCO, Paris; Hanif Kara, Design Director - AKT II, London, and Professor at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge; Azim Nanji, Special Advisor, Aga Khan University, Nairobi; Nasser Rabbat, Aga Khan Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge; Brigitte Shim, Partner, Shim- Sutcliffe Architects, Toronto; and Marina Tabassum, Principal, Marina Tabassum Architects, Dhaka.

Winners of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture announced

Earlier today, six winners of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture cycle were announced, recognising a wide variety of projects in Bahrain, Bangladesh, Palestine, the Russian Federation, Senegal, and the United Arab Emirates.

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established by Mawlana Hazar Imam in 1977, with the purpose of renewing the rich traditions of Islamic architecture. In recent history, these traditions have often suffered along with modernisation and westernisation of building practices, leading to a loss of cultural legacy. In response, the Award seeks 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 42 years, the award has recognised examples of architectural excellence in the fields of contemporary design, social housing, community improvement and development, historic preservation, reuse and area conservation, as well as landscape design and improvement of the environment. The award rewards not only architects, but also municipalities, builders, clients, artisans, and engineers who have contributed to winning projects.

Since its launch, 13 triennial award cycles have been completed, and 116 projects across the world have been recognised — from France to China — while winners have hailed from New York to Dhaka. This year’s winners will share US $1 million between them.

Aga Khan Award for Architecture ceremonies have traditionally been held in settings selected for their architectural and cultural importance to the Muslim world. This year’s ceremony will take place held in Kazan, Russia, which contains a World Heritage Site. Previous Award ceremonies have been hosted at some of the most illustrious architectural settings in the Muslim world, including Shalimar Gardens in Lahore, Pakistan; Topkapi Palace in Instanbul, Turkey; the Alhambra in Granada, Spain; and Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi, India.

The 2016 cycle was held in the United Arab Emirates, at which Mawlana Hazar Imam explained the importance of the Award, saying, “Architecture is the only art form which has a direct, daily impact on the quality of human life.” He went on to say that, “The Award seeks to guide and inspire better building in the future” and that “we hope to remind people everywhere, of all backgrounds and identities, of a powerful lesson: The way in which a thoughtful concern for the built environment can characterise an entire civilisation.”

Taking place from 12-14 September in Kazan, Russia, the 2019 Award proceedings will include a seminar and the Award Ceremony which will be presided over by Mawlana Hazar Imam. The ceremony, on Friday 13 September will be webcast live - more details will be released closer to the date.

The 2019 winning projects are:

Revitalisation of Muharraq (Bahrain)
Arcadia Education Project, in South Kanarchor (Bangladesh)
Palestinian Museum, in Birzeit (Palestine)
Public Spaces Development Programme, in the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation)
Alioune Diop University Teaching and Research Unit, in Bambey (Senegal)
Wasit Wetland Centre, in Sharjah (UAE)

The 2019 Winners of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture

07:41 - 29 August, 2019 by Christele Harrouk

The 6 winners of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture were announced today, by Irada Ayupova, Minister of Culture of the Republic of Tatarstan and Farrokh Derakhshani, Director of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, at a press conference in Kazan, Republic of Tartarstan.

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture, established in 1977, by His Highness the Aga Khan aims to identify and encourage projects that successfully addressed the needs and aspirations of communities where a significant presence of Islamic societies exist. In fact, the awards celebrate the projects that respond particularly to their context and the cultural needs of the inhabitants. The winners of the yearly honour will share US$ 1 million between them, which recognizes all parties involved in the conception, design, and realization of a built project. Moreover, “the Award not only rewards architects but also identifies municipalities, builders, clients, master artisans and engineers who have played important roles in the realization of a project.”

The winners of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture are:

Bahrain: Revitalization of Muharraq

REVITALISATION OF MUHARRAQ (BAHRAIN). Image © Aga Khan Trust for Culture / Cemal Emden

“The Project, which highlights the World Heritage site’s pearling history, was first initiated as a series of restoration and reuse projects. The project evolved into a comprehensive programme that aimed to rebalance the city’s demographic makeup by creating public spaces, providing community and cultural venues, and improving the overall environment.”

Bangladesh: Arcadia Education Project, in South Kanarchor

“The Project in South Kanarchor is a modular structure that takes a novel approach to a riverine site that is often flooded for five months every year. Rather than disrupting the ecosystem to create a mound for building, the architect devised the solution of an amphibious structure that could sit on the ground or float on the water, depending on seasonal conditions.”

Palestine: Palestinian Museum, in Birzeit

“The Project in Birzeit, which crowns a terraced hill overlooking the Mediterranean, is the recipient of the LEED Gold certification because of its sustainable construction. The zigzagging forms of the Museum’s architecture and hillside gardens are inspired by the surrounding agricultural terraces, stressing the link with the land and Palestinian heritage.”

Russian Federation: Public Spaces Development Programme, in Kazan, the Republic of Tatarstan

“A programme in the Republic of Tatarstan that, to date, has improved 328 public spaces all over Tatarstan. The ambitious programme sought to counter the trend toward private ownership by refocusing priorities on quality public spaces for the people of Tatarstan. It has now become a model throughout the Russian Federation.”

Senegal: Alioune Diop University Teaching and Research Unit, in Bambey

“The Project in Bambey, where a scarcity of resources led to the use of bioclimatic strategies, includes a large double roof canopy and latticework that avoids solar radiation but allows air to flow through it. By employing familiar construction techniques and following sustainability principles, it succeeded in keeping costs and maintenance demands to a minimum, while still making a bold architectural statement.”

United Arab Emirates: Wasit Wetland Centre, in Sharjah

“Wasit Wetland Centre, in Sharjah, is a design that transformed a wasteland into a wetland and functioned as a catalyst for biodiversity and environmental education. While its indigenous ecosystem has been restored, it has also proven to be a popular place for visitors to appreciate and learn about their natural environment.”

Mawlana Hazar Imam visits historic city of Bolgar in Tatarstan

Earlier today, 12 September, Mawlana Hazar Imam arrived in Bolgar, located in southwestern Tatarstan, in Russia. During his visit, Hazar Imam spent time at a number of historic sites, and participated in a postage stamp cancellation ceremony to commemorate the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

During his time in Bolgar, Hazar Imam participated in a postage stamp cancellation ceremony at the Bolgar Islamic Academy. Founded in 2016, the institute of higher education trains graduate students in a variety of fields relating to the study of theology and religion. Hazar Imam was accompanied at the ceremony by Mintimer Shaimiev, State Councellor of Tatarstan; and Daniyar Abdrakhmanov, Rector of the Bolgar Islamic Academy.

Following the ceremony, Mawlana Hazar Imam visited the White Mosque, one of the city’s focal points. The White Mosque contains minarets, a prayer room, and an arcade with 88 columns, while its main dome features exquisite stained glass windows.

Later in the day, Hazar Imam visited the Bulgarian Civilisation Museum — which exhibits a number of artefacts detailing the development of religion in the area of Tatarstan — and the adjacent Qur’an Museum, the site of one of the largest copies of the Qur’an in the world. Weighing half a ton and measuring over 2 metres tall, its cover is made of fabric with patterned decoration in silver and gold.

The history of Bolgar dates back to the 9th and 10th centuries; the city was once the political, economic, and cultural centre of the Volga Bolgar civilisation. Local residents adopted Islam in the year 922, thus establishing close ties with the Muslim world. The city enjoyed its heyday during the period of the Golden Horde in the 13th century, when it was an important trading centre. The entire historical and archeological complex at Bolgar has been designated as a UNESCO heritage site.

Aga Khan highlights architecture’s potential to inspire dialogue

Six projects receive 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture

Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, 13 September 2019 – The six winning projects of the 2019 Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA) were acclaimed earlier today at a ceremony held at Kazan’s Musa Jalil State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre. Mintimer Shaimiev, State Counsellor of the Republic of Tatarstan, accompanied His Highness the Aga Khan, hereditary Imam (spiritual leader) of the Ismaili Muslims, in presiding over the Award Ceremony.

The six projects to share a US$ 1 million prize, as selected by the 2019 Award Master Jury are:

Revitalisation of Muharraq, Bahrain
Arcadia Education Project, South Kanarchor, Bangladesh
Palestinian Museum, Birzeit, Palestine
Public Spaces Development Programme, Republic of Tatarstan, Russian Federation
Alioune Diop University Teaching and Research Unit, Bambey, Senegal
Wasit Wetland Centre, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates
The six Award recipients, spanning three continents, include an urban heritage intervention, a floating school, a national museum, an ambitious programme to introduce public spaces across hundreds of localities, a university’s classrooms and halls, and an ecological centre.

“You are implementing the largest charitable, educational and humanitarian projects, support proactive, creative people, regardless of nationality or confession, said Mintimer Shaimiev in acknowledging the contribution of His Highness. “Your peacekeeping mission, your commitment to bringing civilisations closer and achieving unity in diversity are consonant with our goals, especially to me, as the UNESCO Special Envoy for Intercultural Dialogue.”

Speaking at the ceremony, His Highness the Aga Khan noted that on this visit to Tatarstan, he had seen “how committed people can honour the power both of cultural identity and cultural pluralism.”

“It is striking to see how churches and mosques, for example, have been built and preserved right next to one another as powerful symbols of a profound intercultural dialogue,” he said. These were examples, the Aga Khan explained, of what the world was in particular need of today, as we seek to meet accelerating environmental, social, technological, economic and political challenges.

The Award Ceremony was attended by Eleonora Valentinovna Mitrofanova, the Ambassador-at-large of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, other government officials, ambassadors and members of the international diplomatic corps, and leading members of the architectural community from around the world.

Speaking about the theme of “Architecture in Dialogue”, which emerged from this 14th cycle of the Award, the Aga Khan explained the potential of the architectural world to inspire and enrich creative dialogues, embracing diverse and even divergent perspectives. “The rich architectural dialogue we seek to foster should include a renewed respect for the diversity of Islamic cultures themselves,” he said. It was also necessary, he added, to foster a dialogue with non-Islamic cultures including diverse religious traditions. “Architecture can lead the way in this effort – as we listen to one another and learn from one another across old divides.”

The Aga Khan went on to explain why the Ismaili Imamat was involved with architecture. “The simple answer lies in my conviction that architecture – more than any other art form – has a profound impact on the quality of human life,” he said. “I believe that we all have a responsibility to improve the quality of life whenever and wherever the opportunity arises. Our commitment to influencing the quality of architecture – intellectually and materially – grows directly out of our commitment to improving the quality of human life.”

Yesterday, the Aga Khan visited Bolgar, which was a Muslim religious centre as early as 922 and is renowned for its historic and archaeological significance. He toured the Bolgar Islamic Academy, where he attended a special stamp cancellation ceremony to commemorate the Aga Khan Award for Architecture ceremony in Kazan. Later in the day, he visited the White Mosque and the Bulgarian Civilisation Museum where he viewed one of the world’s largest Qurans. The historical and archaeological complex at Bolgar has been designated as a UNESCO heritage site.
