Sajid Bin Doza’s sketches on National Parliament Building

  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Bangladesh is the house of the world's largest legislative complex and it was designed by the eminent American architect Louis I Kahn. Influenced by ancient ruins, Kahn created a style that was monumental and monolithic; his heavy buildings do not hide their weight, their materials, or the way they are assembled. One of the most influential architects of the 20th century, Kahn's works are considered as monumental beyond modernism.
The week-long solo sketch exhibition of architect Dr Sajid Bin Doza Bonny titled ‘Silence in the Crowd: Sketches of National Parliament Building of Bangladesh’ was held at La Galerie of the Alliance Francaise de Dhaka in the city’s Dhanmondi area.
Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor MP inaugurated the exhibition as the chief guest, while eminent architect and poet Rabiul Husain and Kazi Golam Nasir, President of Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) also attended the opening ceremony as the special guests.
The exhibition by Dr Sajid Bin Doza titled 'Silence in the Crowd' reasserts the vastness and hugeness of this complex and how it exudes its architectural beauty.
The drawing technique employed for the artworks in this exhibition is experimental.
To convey the magnitude of the structure, Dr Doza chose to express his thoughts using pen and ink on handmade paper. There are also some uses of soft colours to view and contemplate the architecture in a surreal background. This is Dr Doza’s eighth solo.
The exhibition was wrapped up on August 11.  n
