RAIC Gold Medal to The Aga Khan

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada has awarded its 2013 RAIC Gold Medal to His Highness, The Aga Khan. The award, the RAIC’s highest honour, is given each year in recognition of a person of science or letters related to architecture and the arts who has made a significant contribution to Canadian architecture. This year’s selection acknowledges the Aga Khan’s extraordinary achievements in using architecture as an instrument to further peaceful and sustainable community development around the world. It  marks the first time in more than 30 years that a non-architect has been chosen. A presentation ceremony will take place later this year.
