Bashirul Haq is one of the most critically acclaimed contemporary architects of South Asia. His most significant contribution to Bangladeshi architecture is establishing a deep-rooted con- nection with the local context with a rich blend of tradition and modernity; finding a language that is contemporary yet responsive to local culture and climate, creating contextual forms. Unfortunately, there is a very limited resource available on his work and philosophy developed over the last four decades. The body of Haq’s work continues to demand examination as the progress of architectural philosophy inspires dra- matic stylistic change.
