It has been thirty years since I left this town- now a Mega-City of over 14 million people- many of whom are squatters living in slums. While there are indeed modern edifices in the newer parts of the City that boasts modern buildings and high-rises that rival many in the affluent developed world, this album and a few others to follow concentrates on the buildings of the past. As an Architect, I regret that the Bangladeshis are jettisoning everything of the past in a race to modernize.
