Building for Islam takes a close look at the finalists of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, recognising architectural excellence throughout the Islamic world: some ancient; some modern; some utilitarian; and all unique. This four-part series takes an exclusive access-all-areas look behind the scenes at the nominees as the world’s biggest architectural prize decides what’s in and what’s not in the Islamic architectural world.

In this episode: Architects Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell, designers of the Moulmein Rise Residential Tower in Singapore and Foster + Partners and GDP Architects, who designed the University of Technology Petronas in Bandar Seri Iskandar, Malaysia.
