Since its inception in 1977, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture has recognised almost 100 projects that have set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning, conservation and landscape design.

Cutting a swathe across the globe from west Africa to southeast Asia, each project selected for the 2007 Award is illustrated with detailed drawings, specially commissioned photographs and concise descriptions.

An introductory essay by Homi Bhabha is accompanied by texts from Omar Akbar, Homa Farjadi, Sahel Al-Hiyari, Shirazeh Houshiary, Esa Mohamed, Mohsen Mostafavi, Farshid Moussavi, Modjtaba Sadria, Brigitte Shim, Billie Tsien and Ken Yeang. The nine projects include an urban square in Beirut, an embassy in Addis Ababa, a sustainable school house in rural Bangladesh and a mud-brick market in Burkina Faso. To mark the thirtieth year of the Award, this publication also includes a historical overview of winning projects, seminars and events through the years.
