The d. Academy was inspired by words delivered by Aga Khan, founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

Dubai: A new education initiative under the mentorship of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture is launching a learning programme to promote architecture and design in the UAE.

The Young Architect and Design Programme (YADP) will open a dedicated space for learning and cultural engagement called the d. Academy in partnership with Alserkal Avenue.

The focus of the d. Academy, located in Warehouse 44 in Alserkal Avenue, will be to help the exchange of ideas and a better understanding of architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and landscape architecture.
With a year-long calendar of exhibitions, workshops, lecture series and seminars, the YADP will run under the stewardship of Engage ME, a Toronto- and Dubai-based education and culture entity.
