FCBStudios are exhibiting at this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. As part of the Architecture Room, we are showing a model for the Aga Khan Academy in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a project currently underway in joint venture with Shatotto.

This year, David Adjaye has curated the architecture room, with the theme of ‘Climate and Geography (or vice versa)'.

The 1200 student residential school near the centre of Dhaka is arranged around a central ‘Maidan’ – a community gathering space and sports field, linked by a continuous colonnade and landscaped courtyards of varying character.

The building pays homage to locally manufactured brickwork and traditional skills. A language of brick patterning and artistry has been developed here by learning from local precedents and expertise, and the site is being used to train the next generation of brickworkers.

All circulation is open air but sheltered from sun and rain: all rooms have cross ventilation. The buildings are designed to breathe through traditional jali screens and windows: the architecture facilitates air movement.  High level vents supplement low wind speeds with ceiling fans adding to adaptive thermal comfort. This is a climate responsive architecture informed by traditional buildings and contemporary low energy design and technology.

The study in clay is a cast model of the school, drawing on the qualities of the brickwork apparent in the building itself.
