2017 UIA Jean Tschumi Prize for Excellence in Architectural Education and Criticism.
"The award recognises his achievements in a career spanning 30 years, in which he has headed three architecture departments – two as founder – in three continents and has emerged as a worldwide authority on architectural pedagogy and the architecture of emerging cities in the Middle East."
The Jean Tschumi Prize is one of five awards made every three years since 1961 by UIA, an international non-governmental organization founded in 1948 that represents more than a million architects in 124 countries. It is recognized by most United Nations agencies as the only association in its field, including UNESCO, UNCHS, ESOSOC, UNIDO, and the World Health Organization, as well as the WTO.
