BI provided the wonderful opportunity for professionals to learn from renowned architects and thought-leaders through intense activities, discussions and workshops. The program featured the two Australian architectural stalwarts Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury, hosted at the site of Panigram in Jessore.
Panigram is a beautiful rural site for an innovative eco-resort amid the lush-green landscape of south-west of Bangladesh. The master class looked at developing strategies for engaging the neighboring local communities in the future of the place in which the community members got directly involved in the making. Bengal Institute’s participants have undergone the impactful experience of working with the nearby villages and the villagers before; the exercise proved to be life-changing for many. With the great opportunity of working with the masters like Peter Stutchbury and Richard Leplastrier along with Marina Tabassum, Kazi Khaleed Ashraf and Khondaker Hasibul Kabir, this weeklong program was a real master-class of international significance.
The Master Class was packed with intense activities, hands-on design exercises, discussions and workshops. The program will focus on building with the local communities and learning from nature, while bringing in discussions and knowledge from all over the world. It was a melting-pot of locally grounded, globally inspired ideas and expertise.
