Mostafavi, Mohsen, editor. Architecture and Plurality. Zurich: Lars Muller Publishers, 2016.
This publication features the winners and shortlisted projects for the 13h cycle of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. It focuses on the unfolding of the qualities that connect architecture and life.
It highlights a series of buildings and projects located within a diversity of
cultures and geographies that make a significant contribution to the
understanding of our values and to the daily lives of their users.
selected projects – shortlisted and premiated by the Aga Khan Award for
Architecture in its 12th Cycle – address a variety of functions at a
diversity of scales, from residential to institutional, from public space to
infrastructure. The ethos of these projects is consistent with that of the
Award: they all place an emphasis on the importance of design as an
indispensable component of social transformation.
internationally recognised practitioners and scholars address the broader
context of contemporary architectural practice with special reference to Muslim
communities and geographies.
This publication will be available for download in summer 2017.
