With the intention of creating a transdisciplinary, postgraduate platform on architecture, landscapes, and settlements in Bangladesh, Bengal Institute’s Academic Program was launched in August, 2015. Structured around seminars, lecture series, and workshop styled design studios, the Academic Program offers short sessions in Spring and Fall Sequences that are open to anyone with an interest in the arrangement and rearrangement of the environment.
Established in 2015, the Research and Design Program is dedicated to the research, design and planning of cities, settlements and landscapes. The aim of the program is to facilitate planned physical future of Bangladesh along with socio-economic development. Operating in various scales from national to small neighborhood, the key focus of the program includes small towns, public space, and public transport, livability in high density, hydrology, landscape and settlements. In collaboration with various government, non-government, local and international institutions, the program has a diverse operation.
Publications and the media channels are our ways to reach to the mass. As part of the mission of making 'design intelligence' mainstream, and bringing multidisciplinary thinking to the challenges of the environment, publications are crucial to build a critical awareness. We publish newsletter-magazines, leaflets, anthologies, books, periodicals in prints, with a growing repository of digital publications in e-books, videos, audios and alternative media.
