Landscape Innovations in the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme

Landscape Innovations in the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme

On September 12, join James Wescoat ASLA, Professor of Landscape Architecture at MIT, for a presentation on the growing importance of landscape architectural design in the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme, and how it addresses the needs and aspirations of societies across the world.

James Wescoat is an Aga Khan Professor in MIT’s Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture and the Co-Director of the Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism. Professor Wescoat has researched water systems in South Asia and the US from the site to river basin scales. For the greater part of his career, he has focused on small-scale historical waterworks of Mughal gardens and cities in India and Pakistan.

This event is supported by the BSA Foundation and organized in conjunction with the exhibition Design for Diversity: The Aga Khan Award for Architecture, on view at BSA Space through September 23, 2018.

Design for Diversity highlights 19 works of architecture from the 2014-2016 cycle of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is given every three years to projects that set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation, and landscape architecture. Through its efforts, this Award seeks to identify and encourage building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of societies across the world.
