Synopsis: The first ever monograph on contemporary architectural practice in Bangladesh, dedicated to international-award-winning architect Mohammad Rafiq Azam. Rafiq Azam is a world-renowned architect. He recently received the Residential Building of the Year Award at the 2012 Emirates Glass LEAF Awards, which took place during the 2012 London Design Festival. He has a holistic approach to design, which not only incorporates the elements of nature but also harnesses its beauty and potential in a practical way in order to enhance the personal experience of a building. From his uniquely Bangladeshi perspective, the human form has two parts—the body as shell and thoughts as soul—and his architecture is similar, where the building manifests as the shell and nature as its soul. Considering the socioeconomic and city-planning conditions of Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, Azam’s architectural vocabulary is kept simple and essential, with traditional spaces like the courtyard, pond, and ghat (steps leading into water) and ample internal and external greenery that merge both urban and rural typologies in an intensely urban context. He arranges water courts as swimming ponds in the middle of homes, natural light rooms, and unfolding wall systems to emphasize the interrelationship between form and space. With more than 200 color and black-and-white plates, exquisite design sketches, and aerial views, as well as watercolor paintings and inspirational phrases, this exceptionally beautiful book is a unique introduction and insight into a visionary architect and Bangladeshi contemporary living and culture.

Book Description SKIRA, 2013. 336 pages. With a forward by Kerry Hill. Texts by Kazi Khaled Ashraf, Philip Goad, Rosa Maria Falvo, and Syed Manzoorul Islam Rafiq Azam is a world-renowned architect, who recently received the LEAF 2012 Residential Building of the Year Award at the London Design Festival. His holistic approach incorporates all the elements of nature, harnessing its beauty and potential in very practical ways. From a uniquely Bangladeshi perspective, his designs reflect the synergies of living environments. Considering the planning conditions of Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital, Azam’s architectural language is quintessential, with traditional courtyards, ghats, and ample internal and external greenery, merging rural typologies in an intensely urban context. Designing exquisite water bodies and natural light rooms with unfolding wall systems, Azam emphasises the subtle interrelationships of ambience, form and function. With more than 300 images, sketches, and aerial views, alongside watercolours and poetry, this exceptionally beautiful and original book offers a unique introduction to a visionary architect and Bangladeshi contemporary living and culture. Rosa Maria Falvo is a writer and curator, specialising in Asian contemporary art and photography. Kerry Hill is an acclaimed Australian architect and influential figure in South East Asia.
