SPIRIT OF NAZRUL

CHALLENGE

Our National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam (25 May 1899 – 29 August 1976) is a man who enriched Bangla literature and music with his extraordinary genius. Popularly known as Nazrul, he produced a large body of poetry and music with themes that included religious devotion and rebellion against oppression. His activism for political and social justice earned him the title of “Rebel Poet”. Nazrul explored a synthesis of different forces in a rebellion, expressing rage as well as beauty, love and sensitivity.

In this design competition, participants have to create an architecture as inspiring as this renowned personality, deciding which aspects to focus on and how the influence should be interpreted. This is an opportunity to translate the mind of a true pioneer into a physical architecture, which has the potential to serve as a beacon for Nazrul, signalling his presence. The design concept should be influenced by Nazrul’s works and life. Design could be a museum, a pavilion,  an interface on an existing settings, an installation or anything that explores ‘spirit of Nazrul’ in as many ways as possible and as freely as possible.
