"Inclusive Architecture": A Book on the 2022 Aga Khan Award for Architecture

The publication titled Inclusive Architecture presents the twenty projects shortlisted for the 2022 Aga Khan Award for Architecture, including the six recipients of the 2020–22 cycle of the Award, and essays that advance, according to the editor, “a common sense of humanity”. Edited by Sarah M. Whiting, Steering Committee member of the Award and Dean of Harvard University Graduate School of Design, the book will be available for purchase from 6th December, 2022.

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture’s aim is not to just honor architects involved, but also to identify municipalities, builders, clients, artisans and engineers who have played essential roles in the completion of a project. This is why this publication showcases the shortlisted and award winning projects from multiple perspectives alongside comprehensive descriptions with the latest images. The texts describe, extrapolate on and thematize the projects. Professor Kazi Khaleed Ashraf contributed an essay to the book; the essay is titled “Notes on the Dialogical in Architecture’. Below are some excerpted pages from the essay.
