Award process and Chairman's Award[rediger | rediger kilde]

The award is aimed at societies in which Muslims have a significant presence.[1] It is organized on the basis of a three-year cycle and is governed by a steering committee chaired by the Aga Khan IV.[2]

A new committee is constituted each cycle to establish the eligibility criteria for project, provide thematic direction with reference to current concerns, and to develop plans for the long-term future of the award. The Steering Committee is responsible for the selection of the Master Jury appointed for each award cycle, and for activities such as seminars and field visits, the award ceremony, publications and exhibitions.

Prizes totalling up to US$1m, constituting the largest architectural award in the world,[1] are presented every three years to projects selected by the Master Jury.[3] The award has completed nine cycles of activity since 1977; documentation has been compiled on over 7500 building projects located throughout the world. To date, 92 projects have received awards. The tenth award cycle covers the period from 2005 to 2007.[2]

The Chairman's Award is given in honor of accomplishments that fall outside the mandate of the Master Jury. It recognizes the lifetime achievement. It has been presented three times: In 1980 to Egyptian architect and urban planner Hassan Fathy,[4] in 1986 to Iraqi architect and educator Rifat Chadirji,[5] and in 2001 to Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa.[6]
