Addressing Local Needs and Aspirations: Case Studies of Architectural Projects (Series 2)

These 23 case studies analyse projects that have received or been short-listed for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. The four sets of case studies are of projects that are related respectively to education; museums and cultural centres; sustainable tourism and social recreation facilities; and community development and infrastructure building projects. The case studies may be used as part of wider studies of human life, behaviour and actions, and their impacts, across time, place and space, as well as to reflect on ways in which the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development may be realised.  

These case studies may be used independently or in conjunction with Series 1, five sets of case studies that relate to the following themes: education, housing, public urban spaces/environments, public buildings and natural and built environments.

Through the case studies, learners are encouraged to connect theoretical learning to the on-the-ground realities and form a deep understanding of their own context and its interconnectedness with the rest of the world. Learners may be thus inspired and empowered, as they engage with real-world projects, to become ethical leaders who achieve positive and sustainable change that can transform our world for the better.
