#marinatabassum #bangladesh #muslimarchitecture #mosque #architecture #cooperunion I’m so fascinated by a female Bangladesh architect’s work. She focuses on the world wide regional identity crisis. Court yard, blurring edge and earth materials were picked by her as the identity language in work. I’m not quite convincing on the first two be honest. But the materials and the handcrafting features are breathtaking. The way of the envelop fabricating the exterior light and nature and these elements rending the space spirit eventually is inspiring on some level. She also talked about her practice in Bangladesh in where she spans architect as social entrepreneurs, financial manager and community organizer, which I think it’s a brilliant observation but not new. Two things confused me. One is that she keeps saying most of the projects were with limit budgets but most of the building work are handcrafted by mason and other kinds of technicians which supposed to be much more expensive, isn’t it? Secondly, I’m not sure about the geometry boldly represented in a lot of floor plans and sections. Where these came from?
