Tabiat (Nature) Pedestrian Bridge in Tehran has been named among the six winners of the 2016 Aga Khan Award for Architecture. The winners were announced on Monday in a ceremony in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The five other winners of the award included a children’s center in China, a park in Denmark, two projects from Bangladesh and an Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs in Lebanon, AP reported.
The architects of each project will receive a share of a $1 million fund, which makes the Aga Khan Award for Architecture one of the world’s most lucrative architecture prizes. The awards are given out every three years, and recognize projects in locations that have substantial Muslim populations. The six 2016 winners were selected from 19 shortlisted projects announced in May.
Winners will receive their awards at a ceremony next month in Al Ain, the UAE.
