Facilitator: Anika Nasra haque
I am happy with the outcome of my workshop conducted with my students in Dhaka. I took two days prior conducting the workshop, one day for discussing the procedure, the other day for making the model. Then on 16th February, I conducted the final workshop from 8.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. The students were really motivated to work on this model after the introductory session before the workshop. And the model was a good one, the students applied their architectural creativity while making it, they made it with coloured acrylic sheet and put an electric light inside it.
The central challenge thrown to them was ‘ Urban Water Logging’, which is the most urgent urban problem faced due to climate change in Dhaka city. The outcome was really interesting… ‘A HYDRAULIC CITY’.
I will write to you in details regarding the workshop next week. Some photographs of the event are attached herewith. More to come with the report.”
