In Bangladesh, the architect Kashef Chowdhury is looking for solutions to the collapse of urban regions and cultural heritage due to abrupt tropical climate changes. Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated regions on earth and its river delta landscape is an area prone to flooding, cyclones, and rising sea levels.
In this context, Chowdhury’s pragmatic and poetic buildings serve society with radical simplicity, sparing a masterful treatment of light, space and materiality. Using earth and bricks as material, he manages to balance maximum fonctionnality and robustness with sensuality and grace.
