About Book:
To commemorate the five decades of formal architectural education in the country, the Department of Architecture, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) launched a proposal for a publication on 50 years of architectural works in Bangladesh. The book
Fifty Years of Architecture in Bangladesh primarily showcases 50 significant works of architecture, created in Bangladesh between 1962 and 2012.  It gives an insight into the shaping of a new trend of Bengali modernism through 7 significant works of Muzharul Islam and 50 nationally and internationally recognized projects by BUET alumni and a few expatriate architects. It depicts the trends of architecture that have consistently developed with the passage of time. The editors presented fifty significant architectural projects spanning the first five decades since the inception of institutional architectural education in this country and made a successful attempt of setting the framework against which architectural practice and pedagogy flourished in Bangladesh.
