Kabul Urban Design Framework Receives AIA 2020 Regional & Urban Design Award

Sasaki is pleased to announce the Kabul Urban Design Framework has received a 2020 Regional & Urban Design award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

The Urban Design Framework covers a range of issues that are shaping Kabul’s form today: infrastructure, housing, mobility, and sustainability. It also reaches beyond traditional themes of physical design to cover topics particularly relevant to the physical and social fabric of the city today: women in Kabul, higher education, and cultural conservation. The 2020 Regional & Urban Design program recognizes exemplary urban design, regional and city planning, and community development across the globe.

“We are thrilled and honored to be selected for this award,” says Sasaki principal Dennis Pieprz, Honorary ASLA. “We worked hard to develop a framework plan for Kabul that builds on the incredible history of the city and offers a bold sustainable future for the people of Afghanistan.”
