Departments / Royal Gold Medal for Zaha Hadid was "totally overdue''
« on: April 10, 2016, 11:40:37 AM »
The Royal Institute of British Architects has acted "to right a 180-year wrong" by giving its highest honour to a woman, the body's president has said.

Jane Duncan made the remark in a speech at a ceremony at RIBA headquarters in London last night, where architect Zaha Hadid became the first woman ever to win the RIBA Royal Gold Medal in her own right.

"Speaking as only the third woman president of the RIBA I find it amazing that it has taken until 2016 to elect the first female Royal Gold Medallist," Duncan told guests at a dinner in honour of Hadid.

"To right a 180-year wrong we elected a woman whom I have admired since my student days, visiting the AA [the architecture school where Hadid studied and taught] from the Bartlett up the road."

On April 07, 2016 the students of Department of Architecture, Daffodil International University visited the LEED Platinum pre-certified green building ‘Simple tree Anarkali’ at Gulshan Avenue designed by renowned architect Muhammad Fayez Ullah, MD, Volume Zero architects.

It is a nationally accepted organization for design, operation and construction of high performance green buildings. Designing Green commercial office building is the recent trend in Bangladesh. In academy it is also expected that students will incorporate green design issues in their projects.
Ar. Mukimul Islam from Volume Zero architects described the design aspects to the students. Students asked different questions and visited the whole compound.

One step ahead to Digital Bangladesh. Its high time taking this type of decissions.


Departments / Exhibition on Famine, Zainul Abedin
« on: November 23, 2015, 02:53:11 PM »
•Zainul Abedin created his famine painting set, which were exhibited in 1944. The miserable situation of the starving people during the great famine of Bengal in 1943 touched his sensitive heart very deeply.
•What he did was not just documented the famine, but in his sketches the famine showed its sinister face through the skeletal figures of people fated to die of starvation in a man-made difficulty.
•The artist depicted this inhuman story with very human emotions. This drawings became iconic images of human suffering.
•This particular brand of realism combines social inquiry and the protest with higher aesthetics.

What the role of architecture museums should be is to be thought in our country too. Our national museum need to address this issue. Recent Shadhinota Stambha museum is very contemporary in this sense. Waiting for Liberation War Museum inauguration, that will be something very inspiring!

Faculty Forum / ELEMENTS OF ART
« on: September 14, 2015, 10:20:41 AM »
Elements of art are the basic properties of a work of art that may be perceived through the senses. In a painting, for instance, the properties that may be perceived through our senses
1.Rhythm of line
3.Massing of forms
5.Light and shade (tone/value)
This is in most cases the order of their priority, not in absolute importance.
•A form must be defined by an outline, and this outline, unless it is to be lifeless, must have a rhythm of its own
•The massing of forms, space, light and shade should be considered in close relation
•Mass is solid space, light and shade are the effects of mass in relation to space
•Space is merely the inverse of mass

Student's project / Nature of study
« on: September 08, 2015, 03:06:48 PM »
The nature of study in the Department of Architecture is different from other departments. The practical classes are project oriented. A project is introduced with specific focus/ objectives. Students work and consult with the teachers, they analyze by sketching, making model etc. The lateral learning from senior batch is very important so they are encouraged to discuss with others. In this process they develop their critical thinking power.

Faculty Forum / Basic Model-making Workshop
« on: September 08, 2015, 01:03:49 PM »
For visualizing and communicating the design, model plays an important role. The quality of a model depends on the methods and techniques followed. The first impression of a design transcends through the visualization. So, it is very important to have a good idea of the model making process.
Organizing model making workshop is very recent demand. To keep pace with the ongoing trend, we invited some model making instructors from BUET who are very qualified in this area. The department organized a two day long basic workshop, where all the students cheerfully participated. It was a great experience for the students to enrich their ideas of the model making process. This experience will be shared by the senior students to the newly admitted and the overall quality of the department will uplift.
The workshop was conducted following the participatory and problem solving approach. At first they were given a problem and they solved it by themselves and the outcome was astonishing! Five models of different structural systems were made and presented towards t
