This book chronicles the first decade and the achievements of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture with special reference to the activities of the third cycle (1984-1986), and presents the winning projects of the 1986 Award. The title Space for Freedom was chosen to underline the commitment of the Award in all its activities, to create an intellectual space where imagination ca soar and the pursuit of relevance and architectural excellence can proceed in myriad ways, transcending a single architectural style or school of thought. Within this space for freedom,
scholars, intellectuals, practising architects and critics have committed themselves to a far-ranging quest for insight into the future built environment of Muslims. Space for Freedom is the third in a series of books under the general title "Building in the Islamic World Today".
