Tamayouz Excellence Award

“I am delighted to be a judge of the Tamayouz Award. There is a new, invigorated ethos of worldwide collaboration within architecture; a truly collective research culture where many contributions and innovations feed into each other. Talents flourish in this global movement and the Tamayouz Award will further link Iraq’s architects with this international community.” Dame Zaha Hadid, DBE – 2012
