The Aga Khan Award for Architecture has announced its shortlist for the 2020–22 award cycle. A total of 20 projects from 16 different countries were selected out of 463 nominations to vie for the $1 million prize given triennially to building concepts that address the needs of communities with significant Muslim populations worldwide.

Since being established in 1977, the Award has gone on to honor 121 projects with nearly another 10,000 being documented in its archive. It is one of the biggest monetary awards in the architectural field and this year will be given to one of many deserving candidates selected from a field that includes a prototype from a team affiliated with the ETH Zurich, a renovation of Oscar Niemeyer’s former guest house in Tripoli, a new Palestinian courthouse, and a thoughtful ecumenical cemetery design in Tunisia.

Representations of the shortlisted entries will be on display in an exhibition in King’s Cross, London, from today until the 30th of June to coincide with the London Architecture Festival. The nine-member jury, which includes Amale Andraos, Nader Tehrani, and 2022 Pritzker winner Diébédo Francis Kéré, will meet again this summer for its selective review process before naming a winner.
