The first publication on contemporary architecture in Bangladesh.
Exhibition at the S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum: December 2017 to June 2018.
Exhibition tour to Germany, France, England and Italy in preparation.

Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, has one of the most important buildings of the 20th cen-tury: its parliamentary building by Louis I. Kahn constructed between 1961 and 1982. Little is known, however, about the local architecture scene that has emerged since then. Yet contemporary architecture in Bangladesh exhibits a strong formal idiom that has its roots in tradition and is combined with an innovative handling of local resources such as bamboo and brick.

Alongside texts by Andreas Ruby, Niklaus Graber, Kazi Khaleed, Saif Ul Haque and Syed Manzoorul Islam, the special photographs taken by Iwan Baan for this publication capture the imagination. Bengal Stream takes the reader on a lively architectural journey to a fascinating, and for many, unknown country located between India and Myanmar.

uncharacteristically for a book on architecture, ‘bengal stream’ shows scenes of everyday life — from the densely populated and rapidly growing cities like dhaka, to the country’s more rural areas. by providing a sense of context, the publication not only sheds new light on lesser known architectural projects, but also on the people and communities who occupy them on a day-to-day basis.

In 2012 the publishing house began an eBook programme that is being constantly expanded. The audiobooks are also available for download and in 2014 the programme will be further expanded to include Apps.
In the future the Christoph Merian Verlag will continue to be a niche for special publications. As we are rooted in the region of Basel, books with a regional relevance are a fixed component of our publishing programme. In the field of art, photography and architecture, we collaborate with important museums and institutions and publish monographs and books on design and architecture.

In collaboration with the Radio Basel Foundation, which awards the annual International Feature Prize, the Christoph Merian Verlag issued the winning feature in the form of an audiobook. We are particularly proud that the feature “Fallbeil für Gänseblümchn” was awarded the 2014 German Audiobook Prize in the category Best Non-Fiction Audiobook.As per 2018 no new audiobooks will be published.
