Publisher's Weekly Review

The Aga Khan Award for Architecture honors architects and designers working in Muslim countries, particularly those drawing on local traditions and using ecologically sound materials and practices. The winning buildings for 2001 are featured in Modernity and Community: Architecture in the Islamic World. With photographs and short essays, the book documents projects like the Kahere Eila Poultry Farming School in Guinea; the SOS Children's Village, a home for orphans in Jordan; and the five-star Datai Hotel in Malaysia. The book is edited by Kenneth Frampton, a Columbia University professor of architecture. (May 6) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
