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. Kazi Khaled Ashraf is a Bangladeshi historian at the University of Hawaii. Philip Goad is the Deputy Dean of Architecture at the University of Melbourne. Syed Manzoorul Islam is an acclaimed Bangladeshi writer and professor at the University of Dhaka.
