To mark the 6th anniversary of department of Architecture, Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology wore a festive look with bright color on 4th August, 2016. The most awaited two daylong celebration was inaugurated by the Vice Chancellor Rafiqul Alam followed by a colorful procession participated by all the teachers and students of the Architecture department.

To put on display the studio works two day long exhibition was arranged for the public at the outer area of the central auditorium where the projects from pencil sketching to large scale urban design were displayed. And the exhibition space itself became the splendid space to see and move on. The live caricatcher drawing by the students was the most attention-grabbing part of the exhibition.

The focus part of the day was the publication ceremony of the department’s first ever publication “OKKHO” by the 11 batch which was dedicated to the meritorious student Muhiminul Islam Siyam, a 5th year active member of the Architecture family whom the department lost due to a road accident early in March, 2016.

The second day of the festival marked with color fest, surprising flash mob  and the most awaiting moment of the program the cultural night which started with memorizing the pioneer Architects  and the closest member of Architecture  department whom they had to say good bye with a heavy heart. The variations in the performances, the use of graphical representation made the viewers speechless. The function was followed by concert staged by the band “The Stone” and thanks giving ceremony to the hard working people of the department whose effort and sweat make the program come to pass.
