    We are excited to be part of the winning pool of the ‘Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture 2017’, a biennial award given by Institute of Architects Bangladesh and Berger. Paraa is awarded in the urban design and landscape category for its recently completed project the Bamboo Play-scape. The jury wished to mention this project for highlighting the value of process in architecture, and as an example of architects’ involvement in raising awareness.
