Twenty architectural works from 16 different countries around the world, from Indonesia to Cape Verde, will compete as finalists in the 2022 edition of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA) to win a share of the generous final prize of $1 million. The finalists were selected by an independent jury from among 463 architectures nominated for the 15th biennial award.

Until 30 June, on the occasion of the London Architecture Festival and as part of the King’s Cross Outdoor Art Project, a photo exhibition of the twenty finalist projects of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA) 2022 will be on display at King’s Cross. The shortlist was announced on 2 June in Geneva, and the twenty finalists were selected by an independent jury whose members include architect Francis Kéré, winner of the AKAA and Pritzker Prize in 2022. The projects competing for the award are buildings constructed between 2017 and 2021 and active for at least one year. The AKAA is part of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), which, through its agencies in 30 different countries around the world, fosters cultural, social and economic initiatives to improve quality of life and create opportunities for people, regardless of their origin or religious faith. There are many areas of interest for the network agencies, from essentials such as education, health, agriculture and food safety, to the cultural arena with art, music, architecture, urban planning, and the preservation of cultural and environmental heritage, disaster reduction and crisis management. The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was launched in 1977 and has since honoured 121 projects and documented over 10,000 of them. The selected works must not only satisfy the functional aspects for which they are built, but must represent architectural excellence in their fields of reference, in the improvement and development of the community, in the reuse of abandoned areas or the conservation of cultural heritage, without overlooking environmental protection and landscape design. In addition, special attention is given to projects involving the use of local resources and innovative technologies that can trigger a virtuous circle of growth for the community. The award is in fact not only aimed at architects, but also identifies the clients and the various workers who played a key role in the development of the project.
