Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) is pleased to announce that IAB Fellow Architect Marina Tabassum has won the Lisbon Triennale Millennium bcp Lifetime Achievement Award for 2022. Congratulations to Marina Tabassum!
It is worth mentioning that Ar. Marina is the first person from the global south to receive the honour, joining Denise Scott-Brown from the USA (2019 winner), the French duo Lacaton & Vassal (2016), Kenneth Frampton from the UK (2013), Álvaro Siza from Portugal (2010) and Vittorio Gregotti from Italy (2007).
The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes the studio or person whose work and ideas have influenced and continue to have a profound impact on current architectural thinking and practice, not emphasizing the end of a career, but on the boldness of their practice. Marina Tabassum and her work over the past three decades in Bangladesh are an inspiring example of how architectural work with local communities, even in the most adverse conditions, can have repercussions across the planet.
During Terra's opening days, Marina Tabassum will be in Lisbon to receive this award on September 30, 2022.
The Institute of Architects Bangladesh again congratulates architect Marina Tabassum and his team and hopes this success of Bangladeshi architects will continue in the future.
