Learning from the Aga Khan Award for Architecture
Bengal Institute, with AKTC, is offering a special course on architecture that shapes our thinking and practice.
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture remains one of the most influential institutions shaping the discourse of architecture today. Through the awards program, as well as conferences and publications, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture sets the tone of how architecture should take shape in the culture and life-world of a region. Being some of the most impactful works in the last several decades, Aga Khan Award winning projects have provided guiding principles to many architects and students.
Sponsored by the Education Programme of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC), Bengal Institute organizes the first month-long academic session that will offer a unique opportunity of learning about the program. Using the rich archive and resources of the Award program, and bringing together award winning architects, and prominent scholars as faculties, and members of the communities benefited by the Award, the Session will offer a unique learning experience.
