Program out come:
Many days has gone to prepare for the event, many Architects have come to the week-long event taking a brief break in their highly important timeline- the question comes in front what have we achieved and what is it that we can achieve. There were 4 fundamental points raised in that event by the BaA president and it has been followed up and still being followed up by senior members and the new committee of BaA led by Sheikh Lana and Tanu Murang after the event. The 4 main points put forward for all Australian Architects, IAB and the academics to consider are:
1. BaA would request Australian Architects to consider to offer short-term internship program for Bangladeshi young Architects living/studying in Australia;
2. IAB to review its constitution to allow members of overseas organisations like BaA to become members or to continue their memberships with IAB;
3. Academics from Bangladesh and Australia to discuss ways to offer student exchange programs to support graduates from both countries to achieve required accreditation; and finally to Bangladesh Government:
4. To create opportunity for BaA as a group to contribute pro-bono works in Bangladesh.
