KhudiBari (খুদিবাড়ি) by Marina Tabassum Architects | FACE | Documentary Trailer

FACE* (Foundation for Architecture and Community Equity) is working with families located in flood-prone regions in Bangladesh living with the consequences of the climate catastrophe testing/adapting a low-cost modular shelter system. Khudi Bari (or tiny house) is designed to withstand high water/wind and can easily be relocated. The goal is to create a site-specific shelter in tandem with the people who will use and inhabit it; promoting direct action and embracing a DIY sensibility.


Supported by private donors, in March 2021 the first three homes were built in collaboration with families living on Chor Hijla. These families are now adapting the modules and we are learning from their adaptations. At least one family member from this first iteration will become part of our training team as the project is rolled out in other areas.


We are currently looking for support/funding/partners. Please contact MarinaTabassumArchitect@gmail.com and alborteresa@hotmail.com if you are interested in hearing more about the project.


*FACE is a non-profit society affiliated with Marina Tabassum Architects, a Bangladeshi architectural studio.

- Louis I Kahn on the National Parliament Building of Bangladesh


This is a CG animated short film by Asif Salman.


The architect of this building Louis I Kahn never got the chance to see his masterpiece in real life. Kahn died in 1974 when the project was approximately three-quarters completed and it continued under David Wisdom, who worked for Kahn.


The national parliament house of Bangladesh took 21 years, almost the same as the Taj Mahal to build this modern architectural marvel. The complex is one of the largest legislative complexes in the world, comprising 200 acres (800,000 m²)


Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban (national parliament house) was designed by Louis Kahn. Construction was started in 1961 when Bangladesh was East Pakistan. The government sought assistance from South Asian activist and architect Muzharul Islam who recommended bringing in the world's top architects for the project. He initially attempted to bring Alvar Aalto and Le Corbusier, who were both were unavailable at the time. Islam then enlisted his former teacher at Yale, Louis Kahn.


Construction was halted during the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War and was completed on 28 January 1982.
