RETHINKING ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION
Organized by BRAC University Architecture Department and Bengal Institute for Architecture, Landscapes and Settlements; on April 6, 2017, 14:30 - 19:00 at BRAC University Auditorium, 66 Mohakhali, Dhaka (Map).
Architects, academics, and leading figures from various disciplines join to discuss the state and futures of architectural education.
"Architecture is more than a discipline, it is part of our “lived experience.” If architecture is an art, it is an existential art, that is, architecture is an organic part of society, of our existences. On the other hand, architecture is increasingly an instrument of global, economic and technological practices. How then to prepare a student of architecture?"
Symposium is organized following themes:
"ARCHITECTURE AND COMMUNITY: RETHINKING THE CURRICULUM,"
" ARCHITECTURE AND THE WORLD: RETHINKING RELATIONSHIPS," and a Roundtable.
Keynote presentations by: Fuad Hassan Mallick and Kazi Khaleed Ashraf.
Participants include: Jalal Ahmad, Abu Sayeed M Ahmed, Salauddin Ahmed, Zainab Faruqui Ali, Zakiul Islam, Perween Hasan, Saif Ul Haque, Bashirul Huq, Nazrul Islam, Monirul Islam, Huraera Jabeen, K. Hasibul Kabir, Ehsan Khan, Atiq Rahman, Mahmudul Anwar Riyaad, and Marina Tabassum
