DETAILS:

True architecture is life-enhancing. To touch the souls of the people, architecture must have a soul of itself. No place of work, study, worship, play or any other human activity should be depressing inspirit. Our built environment should be in harmony with nature and human senses, uplifting the functionality of the entire community. A sensitive architect will design spaces that will evoke our deepest sensations, which will spontaneously respond to our feelings, desires and touch our souls. The spirit and spirituality of architecture is not only confined within the religious buildings, it can be present anywhere-in a classroom, in an office, in a factory or at any place. The users of a space that is spiritually sublime, naturally feel and function well in that particular space.
In addition, we are always attuned to the reality the space that we use, we understand what it says to us, whether should we stay or we should leave, does it make us feel good or irritated, would we love to come back again or not. We are always capable of picking up the subtle nuances of the ambiance of the space and when all of these senses work together in harmoniously in the favor of the space, it becomes a work of Architecture.
To nurture the ideas of expressing one’s soul through their design, we, the students of Architecture’14 batch, Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology are proud to organize an idea based design competition on the event of Architecture Day, 2019 on the topic of “A Spiritual Space”
Submit your ideas about your vision about a spiritual space where it will bring forth the variety of multi-functional senses ranging from silence to shouts of joy, songs, poetry, dance, ecstasy, delight and even fear.
