The exhibition ‘Bengal Stream’ brings together over 60 projects by established and emerging architects in Bangladesh. One of the most internationally prominent architectural photographers, Iwan Baan, was brought in to document the projects.
Only a few of us are likely to be familiar with current architectural developments in Bangladesh’s tropical delta region. This area, blessed with cultural and scenic riches, has so far barely been present on the architectural world map, but that may change in the near future, due to excellent works emerging from a vibrant architecture movement. With ‘Bengal Stream’ S AM is the first museum worldwide to present an exhibition on Bangladesh’s architecture and brings together more than 60 projects by established and emerging architects.
