So one of Canada's top dailies has a list of the best architecture in the world in their weekend edition. I was surprised to see Bangladesh's National Parliament in Dhaka listed as #8. I have posted a pic. Apparently its symbol of hope in an otherwise brutally poor and disaster-prone country.
Has anyone on the forums been here?
I also read that to keep with the original architect's plans (an American I think) two nearly completed govt residences were ordered torn down.
