The nine architectural projects selected as winners of the 2001 Aga Khan Award for Architecture are featured in this celebratory volume. The articles describing the nine winners include many b&w and color photos and plans of the architecture, all of which were selected for their innovative use of local materials and building techniques and the successful community function of the building and its creation. In addition, the life and career is featured of Geoffrey Bawa, recipient of the 2001 Aga Khan Chairman's Award. The volume is not indexed. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
