A children's center in China, a bridge in Iran and a park in Denmark are among the six winners of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
The winners were announced Monday in the historic Al-Jahili fort in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. The awards are handed out once every three years and are meant to celebrate architecture that serves and embraces Muslim culture.
The network is headed by Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of millions of Ismaili Muslims who belong to an offshoot of the Shiite sect.
This year's winners included the Hutong Children's Library and Art Centre, which is located near a large mosque and Tiananmen Square in the Chinese capital, Beijing.
