The Bengal Institute, with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, conducted a special course on architecture that shapes our thinking and practice: Learning from the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
Marina Tabassum speaks about the public realm and what role it plays in a citizen's life. Architects don’t get to design public spaces, we get involved through competitions. It is usually the government who does it. There is a disconnect between the user and the government; this is an important agenda which hasn’t been a focus. In this presentation, Marina Tabassum showcases three projects: Museum of Independence, Comfort Reverie, and Bait Ur Rouf Mosque. A lecture continues in part 2.
