Hello Ershad,

The building you mentioned is a class in architectural terms. Architect Kahn used exposed bricks in new language, he interconected spaces and inside/out in wonderous way. Yes, his buildings have elements of surprise, yes he is poetic and rythmic there in architecture. Keep enjoying his work. Regards,

It is a great building, and as others have previously mentioned, it was revolutionary in architectural design. One may mention the connection of this revolution with the revolution that created Bangladesh while the building was in construction.

As an Bangladeshi myself, I have always enjoyed the building and the sorrounding atmospere of it, among the rest of the population of Dhaka. It created an amaging respite from the chaos of the city even though it is smack in the middle of it. The interior is illustrated near the end of the documentary on Kahn's life called "My Architect". From whatever little one could see of the interior in the movie, I found it to be much more interesting, in regards of spatial qaulity, than the exterior.

Does anyone know if there are any tours available to visit the interiors? Or is it open to only Patliament Members?

Hello Sonia,
I have visited several times inside the Parliament building for my thesis and with my students. You need a formal permission from PWD, as they are the responsible body to take care of it. Excluding some certain restricted spaces you can visit any places including the assembly chamber, but no photograph.
