Path of Resistance: A Journey Toward Designing Locally Sensitive Buildings
Marina Tabassum in Conversation with Amale Andraos
In this podcast episode, Dean Amale Andros speaks with architect Marina Tabassum about architectural design that respects and prioritizes local communities, contexts, and civic aspects of city life. Marina Tabassum is Founder of Dhaka-based Marina Tabassum Architects (MTA), and Director of Academic Programs at the Bengal Institute for Architecture, Landscapes and Settlements. Her work has established a contemporary architectural language in Bangladesh that is locally rooted. We learn about how her design-oriented studio takes a firm stance on “the path of resistance” in building an unconventionally diverse portfolio. The interview was conducted prior to the 9th annual Kenneth Frampton Endowed Lecture held at the school on September 23, 2019.
