The Kennesaw State University Department of Architecture, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Council for the Southeastern United States, presents its first lecture of the series, “Diversity and Pluralism in Architecture.”

Please join us for Professor Hasan-Uddin Kahn’s lecture “At the Cutting Edge: A Retro-Prospective of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.” Prof. Kahn is the Distinguished Professor of Architecture & Historic Preservation at Roger Williams University.

Description
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is not a prize but a process of examining the built environment of Muslims and a discourse about contemporary building the world over. Looking back over the genesis and development of the Award and looking forward, the architectural discourse so engendered unfolds as a series of agendas that are illustrated by the award program.

The lecture will be followed by the Aga Khan Award for Architecture Exhibit opening reception at the Architecture Gallery.
