The Aga Khan Award for Architecture has announced the nine-member Master Jury for the 2020-22 cycle. From Bangladesh, Prof Kazi Khaleed Ashraf, Director-General of Bengal Institute for Architecture, has been named as a juror.

The nine-member Master Jury will convene in January 2022 to select a shortlist from hundreds of nominated projects. The jurors will meet for a second time in summer 2022 to examine the on-site reviews and select the final recipients of the prestigious $1 million Award that's given every three years.

In fact, once the Master Jury selects a shortlist, the shortlisted projects are then subjected to rigorous on-site reviews by independent experts, most of them architects, conservation specialists, planners or structural engineers.

The selection process puts emphasis on architecture that not only provides for people’s physical, social and economic needs, but that also stimulates and responds to their cultural aspirations.
