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.

Ali M. Malkawi, a professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, is founding director of the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities and Co-Area Head Master of Design for Energy and Environments.

Nondita Correa Mehrotra is an architect working in India and the United States.

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.
