The Tamayouz Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates the achievements of individuals who have made significant contributions towards humanity and the advancement of architecture and the built environment.
The award also recognises those whose commitments to architecture were and continue to be unparalleled. Established as part of the Tamayouz Excellence Award programme, which champions and celebrates the best architecture worldwide, the Lifetime Achievement Award has previously been presented to Iraq’s renowned architects, such as Dr Mohamed Makiya (2014), Dr Rifat Chadriji (2015), Dr Kahtan Al-Madfai (2016), Hisham Munir (2017) and Maath Alousi (2018).
This year, the award opens to architects from across the Near East and North Africa.
Coventry University Academic and founding director of the Tamayouz Excellence Award, Ahmed Al-Mallak said: “We are delighted to expand the lifetime achievement award to the Near East and North Africa and offer the region a consistent and a prestigious recognition programme to celebrate the lifetime achievements of the architects who shaped the world we live in”.
The 2019 Laureate will be announced in July 2019.
We encourage universities in the region to get involved and nominate architects for the Tamayouz Lifetime Achievement Awards.
