Fall 2015: October Session: Home and Dwelling

Sat 3 Oct - Wed 28 Oct' 15

Some prominent architects, from both home and abroad, came to join us in forums to share their works and ideas about Home and Dwelling.

Home is at the foundation of all environmental acts; it is the beginning of all built forms by humans. Bashirul Haq ran a month long session of design studio and lectures; as one of the most important architects of the country, he is well known for designing residential projects. Arindam Chakrabarti came to question the core of dwelling. He helped with planting new seeds of thoughts on being, living, home and dwelling. Channa Daswatte worked with Geoffrey Bawa and C. Anjalendran and showed the participants examples of tropical design, from the Sri Lankan masters and of his own practice. Kazi Khaleed Ashraf connected all the dots through history, philosophy and theory of dwelling. Local architects including Marina Tabassum, Nahas Ahmed Khalil, Saif Ul Haque, Ehsan Khan, Jalal Ahmad, Salauddin Ahmed, Enamul Karim Nirjhar, and Kashef Chowdhury, were also present to share their works and ideas about Home and Dwelling.
