The exhibition showcases the Aga Khan Award for Architecture through the winners and shortlisted projects of the most recent award cycle as well as 14 Turkish winners of the Award, particularly the Award’s interest in building schemes that use local resources and appropriate technology in innovative ways and that, through replication, can improve the quality of life. Because architecture has one of the greatest impacts of any human endeavor on the quality of daily life, the exhibition suggests that its impact must be carefully considered. Architecture is Life.
 
Established in 1977, the Aga Khan Award for Architecture is given every three years to projects that set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and landscape architecture.   Projects can be anywhere in the world, but must successfully address the needs and aspirations of societies in which Muslims have a significant presence. The exhibition is part of “EUROPALIA focuses on Turkey!”.
