Suha Özkan was the coordinator of one of the most important architectural award programs, “Aga Khan Awards for Architecture” from 1982 to 2007. Later he established the “World Architecture Community”, a popular online magazine, community portal and award program of today. From these experiences, he got the opportunity to explore the works of some of the best architects around the world. In his lecture, he showed works of the Pritzker Prize-winning architects and also some of Aga Khan Award winning projects, and made comparisons of the two programs. He indicated how these mainstream award programs shaped our understanding, acceptance and sense of validity in philosophical, social and environmental aspects.
