    A SEMINAR ON MUGHAL GARDENS AND LANDSCAPESA special seminar with Prof Jan Haenraets of Boston University. A three-day seminar in the second week of June.The seminar will cover an introduction to the history of the sixteenth to eighteenth century Mughal gardens from Babur to Aurangzeb, within the context of the establishment and growth of the Mughal Empire. It takes a closer look at the era of Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan when a peak in garden developments was achieved, with a prime focus on landscape components. Selected examples are explored to illustrate the evolution of the Mughal garden typology, phased developments, design components, horticulture and water systems, and gardens on the Mughal roads. The seminar looks at examples of pre-Mughal layers and appropriation by the Mughals. Places throughout the empire are studies, with close attention paid to the Mughal landscape in Kashmir. The seminar reflects on post-Mughal dereliction and adaptation, recent approaches towards conservation, raising awareness of the Mughal landscape heritage, and the place of this legacy in contemporary cities. The seminar combines lecture format introductions with critical and analytical conversations and reflections.Jan Haenraets is a landscape architect and teaches at the Preservation Studies Program at Boston University. His current research explores global approaches to historic landscape preservation, ecological sustainability, preservation of twentieth-century designed landscapes, and Mughal landscape heritage in Kashmir. Further details of the seminar to be announced.

    REVIEW OF "THE GREAT PADMA" BOOKZACHARY LAMB REVIEWS THE BOOK IN THE JOURNAL OF ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION"The Great Padma: The Epic River That Made the Bengal Delta is a new volume that introduces the power, complexity, and cultural richness of the Padma to a global audience... Like the Bengal Institute’s other work, The Great Padma explores and illuminates Bangladesh and the eastern Bengal Delta, a region that has long been ignored or presented as a domain of poverty, vulnerability, and developmentalist intervention. The book, with 400 pages of visual and narrative material from dozens of contributors, depicts the complexity of the Padma in all of its culture-defining, landscape-molding, and devastation-wreaking power. The Great Padma will be of particular interest to readers engaged with the landscapes, built environments, and cultures of the eastern Bengal Delta and South Asia more broadly."https://lnkd.in/g7TjaDqX

    IN SEARCH OF RAJNAGAR: PART 2[Part 1, published earlier, discussed the hydrological fury of river Padma and how it devoured the town of Rajnagar around 1870. The discussion also included identifying the present location of where Rajnagar could have been.]Rajnagar, as it was named, was a city or town, established by Raja Rajballabh in his birthplace Beel Deonia, and later developed by his son and grandson. According to documents and descriptions, the town was rich with architecture that included wondrous buildings and tanks. The architectural marvels vied with those at Nabadwip. Notable buildings were mainly temples with high spires known as ratna or ‘jewels,’ as well as chala roofs, which could be seen from the river Padma. James Rennell, in his diary that chronicled his journey from Calcutta to Dhaka in 1764, mentioned spotting “the pagodas” of Rajnagar, once from a 6-7 mile distance from the west and again 12 miles from the north. Among the spired buildings were nine-spired, five-spired, seventeen-spired, and the most famous twenty-one-spired building. This twenty-one-spired building was erected by Raja Roy Gopalkrshina, the fifth son of Rajballabh, and was the main entrance to the palace compound. The three-story building had chambers for soldiers on the ground floor, and the first floor chambers were for musicians who used to play morning ragas from there. This remarkable building, not quite a temple, was a composite of features from traditional Bengali temple architecture. This unique building had an ek bangla (chala) roof on the gateway, ten ratna-type small chambers, and, most amazingly, eleven math-like spires on the top forming a bow that could be seen from a long distance.Besides significant buildings and temples, the city had many big tanks and reservoirs. The largest one was called Rajsagar; there was a saying that it was so big that one could not hear gunfire from the other side. Another big one next to Rajsagar was known as Old Dighi. On the west bank of the Old Dighi, there used to be a significant and famous festival named Kalboishakhi Mela, which was held for two months. Jaychandra Bhattachary of Srihatta, one of the prominent Bhatta poets of the 19th century, wrote a poem in 1876 called ‘Rajnagar,’ in which he gives a grievous description of the city and how it vanished in the river with all its glory.(This research with visualization was carried out by Hassan M. Rakib under the guidance of Kazi Khaleed Ashraf and video edited by Amit Krishna Sarkar.)

    THE FUTURE OF THE CITY, THE CITY OF THE FUTURE"Amar Gram, Amar Shohor" is a possible mediation between what has always appeared to be opposites: the village and the city. If "Amar Gram, Amar Shohor" is properly interpreted, conceived and implemented, it could provide a third option of settlements with a new fabric and facilities, but appropriate to the scale and logic of our villages, and coherent with geographical and ecological virtues. It is possible that we can bypass urbanisation (nogorayon) and arrive at a new urbanism ("nogorotto"), a new model of human settlement that we may call "gramnogor.""From the recent article by Prof Kazi Khaleed Ashraf, "The future of the city, the city of the future", published in The Daily Star (Feb 20, 2024).Read the article here:https://lnkd.in/gtafSjhf
