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!

Visual art includes all the fine arts (drawing,painting,sculpture,printmaking etc.) as well as new media and contemporary forms of expression such as Assemblage,Collage,Conceptual,Installation and Performance art,as well as Photography and film-based forms like Video Art and Animation,or any combination thereof.
•Classification of visual arts can be divided in two ways:
1.Based on content or theme-
i.Abstract art
ii.Art with content
iii.Art without content
iv.Humanistic art
2. In general-
i.Fine art
ii.Design discipline

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.

Student's project / Learning through model making
« on: September 08, 2015, 02:59:41 PM »
Learning through model making can be an important tool. Students made model of 'Church of light' in their 'Luminous Environment in Architecture' course and analyzing it. They analyzed through drawing and rendering techniques.

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

Faculty Forum / [b]Tessellation [/b]
« on: September 08, 2015, 01:00:52 PM »
A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps.

In architecture, tessellations have been used to create decorative motifs since ancient times. Mosaic tilings often had geometric patterns.[4] Later civilisations also used larger tiles, either plain or individually decorated. Some of the most decorative were the Moorish wall tilings of Islamic architecture, using Girih tiles in buildings such as the Alhambra and La Mezquita.
Tessellations frequently appeared in the graphic art of M. C. Escher; he was inspired by the Moorish use of symmetry in places such as the Alhambra when he visited Spain in 1936. Escher made four "Circle Limit" drawings of tilings which use hyperbolic geometry. For his woodcut "Circle Limit IV" (1960), Escher prepared a pencil and ink study showing the required geometry.[71] Escher explained that "No single component of all the series, which from infinitely far away rise like rockets perpendicularly from the limit and are at last lost in it, ever reaches the boundary line."
Tessellated designs often appear on textiles, whether woven, stitched in or printed. Tessellation patterns have been used to design interlocking motifs of patch shapes in quilts.
The honeycomb provides a well-known example of tessellation in nature with its hexagonal cells

Water color is very popular technique in wet media painting. In HUM-102 Art appreciation course students get to know about this technique. The DoA organized a workshop on Basic Water color techniques on 6th September, 2015. Mr. Sk. Md. Rezwan, lecturer of DoA was the instructor and students practically worked on different techniques i.e. wet on wet, wet on dry, tonal variation in landscape, dual color blend and edge definition etc. At the end of this workshop the white board of the classroom turned into colored board by student’s project.

Departments / Natural color

We always see the color in nature as a form of flower, leaf, fruits, clay etc. This color was an important source of drawing in ancient times. with the development of artificial color we almost forgot the very source of color. So in my art I tried to create color from nature and used it in painting which can be termed as 'organic art'. I used yellow flower, violet leaf as color and hyacinth root, petiole as brush. See the result in non-edited and edited version.

Departments / Learning from nature
« on: August 30, 2015, 02:48:19 PM »
Participating in a course on Landscape at Bengal Institute. Currently working on a workshop where we observed nature very closely and tried to find inspiration to design. I worked on tree buckle. A surface of a Raintree holds numerous life under its buckle, which is changed naturally. It grows up with lots of life with it for example, ants, mushrooms, creepers, fungus etc.. I got really mesmerized seeing it. I tried to create this idea in a designed module which can attract other life form. So I placed it on a barren land where no grass is grown hoping that few days later life will be attracted and it will become green again.

Departments / Student Ideas Competition for the Tejgaon Airport Site
« on: March 22, 2015, 09:43:33 AM »
A student team from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET) recently posted a video of their entry for the Student Ideas Competition for the Tejgaon Airport Site organised by the BUET Alumni. The video shows a great technique for design charettes; utilising one sheet of large format paper to brainstorm issues, ideas, and create small vignettes depicting the main ideas and principles.

The competition challenged multidisciplinary student teams to develop planning and design proposals for the 415 acre site of Tejgaon old airport, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The primary goal of the participants is to develop proposals for the Tejgaon Old Airport site to transform the existing under-utilized site into an urban public space for city dwellers.

Our idea was to create an icon for the city to dream big, aspire for a better future.

We have got iconic monuments of cultural and political history. But the history of this deltaic landscape has been brutally erased from this city. In order to dream for a green sustainable future we need an ecological icon. This icon will be no vertical monument, rather a horizontal stretch of water, marshland and forest depicting the memory of the ecological and agricultural landscape of this deltaic city. The roadside periphery of the site will provide intimate public gathering space, pedestrian and bicycle pathway and overhead causeway to observe the nature within. Through biological conservation we are idolizing our dream of a greener future.

Departments / Bashundhara City context
« on: March 10, 2015, 11:17:25 AM »
The site of Bashundhara City lies in between 2 major transportation routes (Airport Road at its west and Mirpur Road on its east) which links Motijheel - the old CBD and the burgeoning Northern part. Location-wise Bashundhara City is in the central position with respect to the existing and projecting developments and has the potentiality to become the ultimate growth centre of this area and lessening the burden of pressure on the over congested areas. The B-City site serves all the prerequisites for an international level Shopping development ranging from the easy accessibility to strategic location of surrounding thriving commercial developments.
The site by the side of the Panthapath Road and SAARC Fountain Crossing for the proposed B-City is of great commercial importance. As with the commerce and manufacturing industry, the locational trend has been northwards of Dhaka with significant concentrations emerging in the Pan Pacific Sonargaon hotel/Karwan bazaar area, Panthapath Link from Karwan Bazaar to Mirpur Road, Tejgaon and Banani-Gulshan. The site also has the potential to be linked or incorporated with many projected road network segments for development either by RHD or RajUK as proposed in the Dhaka Metropolitan Development Planning (DMDP) for 1995-2015. The proposed Eastern Bypass so extended would be capable of linking to the proposed Bashundhara City to its east through Panthapath Link.

Departments / Changing retail pattern
« on: March 10, 2015, 11:13:02 AM »
Cities are meant to be changes due to circumstances, culture, societies, politics and economy so as the commercial spaces. The retail shopping environments of Dhaka city evolved progressively over the time period. They have developed within a continuous growth process by the needs and aspiration of different retailer and consumer group. These changes are also evident in the internal layout of the shopping complex. Even within one shopping complex these changes occur to attract more consumers. The selected shopping mall for the study was said to be one of largest shopping mall in South Asia and had a huge/great impact on the retail activity pattern of the Dhaka city.Bashundhara City was designed to meet the recent trend of shopping complex in the developed world is expressed by endorsing “all-integrated facilities within one roof”. Over the period of the mall has been gone through various changes. This paper studies the socio-economic and spatial changes in/ changing pattern of retail activity in bashudhara City, Pathapath.

workshop on "oil color and water color" by Nidalia Islam and
lecture series "what I did next" by Amit Imtiaz

Organized by: Dept of architecture, DIU
It was a cheerful and colorful day for the department. The students participated a day-long hands on workshop on oil color and water color. The department head inaugurated the session with his welcome speech. In his speech the Head focused on the the necessity of using different artistic techniques in presentation. He also gave much importance on sketch in today's computer age presentation. He welcomed the instructor in the Department and thanked for her time.
The instructor is an architect and freelance artist (participated in group exhibition in Different galleries), shared with students about the techniques that can be used by the students to create different textures in painting. At first a short presentation showed students about basics of art. Then she formed groups among the students and guided them to start oil color painting procedures. This session was very interactive and they presented their works to the instructor.
The second session was again performed in group and this time the instructor showed the introduction to water color mainly the wash techniques. The best outcomes from the students were discussed.
The Lecture series is designed to be an ongoing event in the department. Today’s speaker was Imtiaz Ahmed , a 5th year student of CUET, who shared his struggle and experience as 1st batch student in a newly established department in a university. The Q/A session was elongated and spontaneous and participatory. Students questioned about different topics being a student in architecture department and the speaker answered in a very informal way.
So the sharing of ideas and experience is likely to have an impact in the students thought.
