Cross-cultural approaches in architecture
In the Spring semester of 2019, BK Bouwkunde welcomes Dhaka-based architect Marina Tabassum as visiting professor. Tabassum is celebrated for her focus on local culture, climate, materials and history. On 21 March, she will kick of her visiting professorship with her public lecture 'Cross-cultural approaches in architecture'.
In her work, Tabassum is inspired by local cultures, climate, local history and community engagement, aiming to counteract what she finds impersonal in the architecture of today. Her design for the Bait ur Rouf Mosque in Dhaka was awarded the Aga Khan Award. The Mosque is remarkable for its emphasis on space and light and its diverse, community-oriented program.
