Inside Story

Architect Mohammad Foyez Ullah

  1. What is your opinion about the architecture scene of Bangladesh right now?

As of late, Architects has broken the shackles that have once limited the potentials of the profession. I believe the architecture scene has evolved and it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

  1. What according to you is the future of architecture in Bangladesh?

Good architecture is the creation of a need. The distinct architectural expression of the national parliament complex was never a necessity, we only needed an architectural statement but, now that we have the distinct geometric composition of that complex, can we live without it?

I believe the future of architectural expressionism in Bangladesh hinges on the creation of many such needs, I am optimistic!

  1. A piece of advice for young architects who want to build a career in this field

Failure and success are both part of life. It is uncertain, but owning your failures is as important as reveling in your successes.

If you hit rock bottom it is a strong foundation to start anew with the lessons learned from failures. Persistence and passion never go in vain. If you love what you do, you need not worry.
