Time and again, age old structures are threatened for demolition in the name of safety and development. Several examples of rich architecture, heritage and culture have already been extinct in the past and recent past. Historic significance, heritage values and the structural stability are not known to have been considered in many occasions during the demolition process. As a result, the nation loses the glory and pride which have been embodied within those structures. It is apprehended that many other structures are in the line of being target of such destruction, demolition or conservation & renovation in the name of growing need, progress and development. It is true that, not all the old structures are worth conservation. And it is also true that there has to be a policy and guideline in order to identify the structures with historic significance. Often times, architects, involved in design and development works, come across situations where they have to deal with structures and places with historic connotation. There are many such instances which triggered condemnation & criticism from the professionals and anxious citizens of the society. Institute of Architects Bangladesh and all its members are concerned with the issue and it is high time that an open discourse be organized to discuss the impasse and dilemma related to the approach to deal with old structures.

In this light, IAB organizes the 3rd. session of VISION D3: ARCHITECTURE & HERITAGE. It is expected that thru active participation of members and the exchange of experiences, views and opinions, policies & strategies will emerge which will help IAB to move forward in the coming future.
