Mymensingh of My Mind
The project is a compilation of the mind mapping done through a short month long masters session, ‘Architecture and the City’ at the Bengal institute of Architecture, Landscape and settlements. The session was lead by Micheal Sorkin and Kazi Khaled Ashraf. The reader is guided on a journey between the imagined (fictional / fabricated) and the physical (contextualized / accessible) through written expressions. The compilation focuses on ‘Space’ as imagined and written about, but works with reference to actual experiential spaces in the small town of Mymensingh.
