Aga Khan Award: 2 Bangladeshi projects shortlisted

Two Bangladeshi architectural projects have been selected among 20 shortlisted projects for Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2019.

These are: Arcadia Education Project in South Kanarchor and Amber Denim Loom Shed in Gazipur, says a press release.

Arcadia Education Project is a modular amphibious structure, which incorporates spaces for a preschool, hostel, nursery and vocational training centre. It is situated on a riverine site that is often flooded five months  a year.

Amber Denim Loom Shed is a structure integrating new designs that combine traditional Bangladeshi residential architecture with contemporary elements in a large open space accommodating a buyers’ lounge, dining space, prayer area, machines and washrooms.

The shortlisted projects, announced yesterday, will compete for a $1 million prize money.
