Like other emerging mega-cities of the world, Dhaka has been growing exponentially, particularly since it became the capital of the independent nation of Bangladesh in 1971. Today, a visitor's first impression of this city could be bewildering. Dhaka is a quintessential 21st century urban narrative of whirlwind modernity. This guidebook focuses on 25 buildings, representing different architectural phases since the Mughal era, beginning in the early 17th century. The featured buildings communicate larger ideas about the city's building tradition, represent an architectural trend, influence the architectural scene, and offer a spatial story in the evolution of the city.
