Bangladeshi architect SaifUl Haque was invited to the Royal Danish Academy to give a keynote lectureas part of the Academy’s International Lecture Series. In 2022 the lecture series explores the UIA World Congress 2023 CPH agenda Sustainable Futures – Leave No One Behind.
The work of SaifUl Haque exemplifies architecture’s ability to engage with complex environmental and social conditions. His Arcadia Education Project won the Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2019 and demonstrates an architecture that uses its spatial and aesthetic sensibilities to address climatic and social conditions while engaging with local cultural and material resources. The brief was to build a low-cost, low-impact school on a plot of land that is flooded by three meters of monsoon water one third of the year. A buoying amphibious structure was created through experimental and collaborative teamwork, providing a solution that offers crucial experience and inspiration on how to build environmentally and socially viable, not least in the wake of our planet’s rising sea levels.
In the lectureSaifUl Haque presents his practice and the principles and historical contexts informing it.
