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.
The obsession with trying to fit the discipline into a strict specialised definition which has resulted in many academic programs leaving out many vital aspects of architecture has left aspiring architects failing to learn some of the defining skills needed to be a complete architect .In Bengal Institute, the pursuit to bridge the gap between these related fields will give these young architects the opportunity to see the field as a whole, improving their understanding of it and hopefully helping them become the architects they want to be.
September 2018 is a special session focusing on the Aga Khan Award for Architecture winning projects. Faculties include former AKAA director Suha Ozkan, Moroccan architect, writer Hassan Radoine and AKAA award winners. This program is free to attend.
