Pundranagar to Sherebanglanagar : The Architecture of Bangladesh is the first meticulous documentation of the architectural heritage of Bangladesh. The book is an introduction to significant historic buildings that have influenced the architectural development of the region. It spans a time period of nearly two thousand years, from the earliest extant Buddhist monuments to the twentieth century masterpieces of Louis Kahn at Sherebanglanagar. The heart of the book is the catalogue of intricately rendered drawings of selected architectural sites. Six sections cover the period of nearly two thousand years : Early Mounmental Architecture, Islam in the Delta, Mughal Subha-e-Bengali Modernism. A total of 71 architectural sites is represented through measured drawings and photographs, some of which were surveyed and are being presented for the first time. The catalogue is supplementary by color photographs. Pundranagar to Sherebanglanagar : The architecture of Bangladesh has been described as making an invaluable contribution not only to architectural scholars but also to anyone interested in the very identity of the Bengali nation, and its history and Heritage. It provides a general outline but a compelling presentation of the rich variety of Bengali architecture.
