Across a range of settings, the projects selected for the tenth cycle of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture match cutting-edge design with a deep commitment to place. Resolutely contemporary and yet firmly local, they respond to the challenges of their environments with imagination and skill. Intervention Architecture brings these works vividly to life through outstanding photographs as well as drawings and descriptions. Texts by leading thinkers and practitioners explore the broader issues raised by the projects, from ecological urbanism to cosmopolitanism in architecture.
