On August 18, 2017, the students of ARCH 3114: SCULPTURE course from the Department of Architecture, AIUB successfully completed a daylong workshop on Clay Modeling at renowned Sculptor Prof. Hamiduzzaman Khan’s Sculpture Park and Studio at Kashimpur, Gazipur. Prof. Hamiduzzaman, as the course instructor along with Saiful Hasan Tariq, Fauzia Rahman Mouri and Md. Rashed Hasan accompanied the team and supervised the whole day long process.
Sculpture Park and Studio is relatively a first-hand phenomenon in our context. It is a facility that provides living and work space to the emerging and established artists. The trip integrated both site visit and hands on training, the two utmost imperative parts of architecture study. The study trip was aimed to develop understanding for SCULPTURE as an important form of Art and offer appreciation for contemporary form of Sculpture and tools used in its creation.
Each student was assigned with an individual project. They made two clay models each with the help of their own hand and few basic modeling tools. Students completed the given projects on site with great enthusiasm. With this study trip the students understood the concept of integrating SCULPTURE with ARCHITECTURE and the appreciation of sculpture in urban landscape.
Architecture Department is thankful for the logistic support provided by AIUB that made the trip a successful one.
