Kashef Chowdhury speaks about his work as an architect in rural Bangladesh. For each project – be it a training center for an NGO or an art gallery – he enters into a dialogue with the local environment, taking into account regional specifics as well as the challenges of climate change. He often uses on-site materials such as clay which are processed locally. Chowdhury’s style draws inspiration from the cultural heritage of his homeland his experience of Bangladeshi nature. Important references are the play of light and shadow, the movement of water and air, the experience of time and space.
“Shadows have a wonderful way of celebrating the presence of light.”
