Sharing Experience and Distilling
Wisdom towards Building Green,
Sustainable Urban Architecture –
As we embark on the journey of growing urbanization with bigger structures, Building Green is certainly the need of the hour. Ultimately Building Green is not about the cost but a testament of human creativity and imagination
From that consciousness, Shah Cement hosted a seminar titled ‘Green Integration in City planning & Urban Architecture-Singapore’s Experience’ to present two of the leading personalities in the field of Urban Planning and Green Building with more than 50 years of collective experience. Mr. Lee Siang Tai an Architect and Urban planner, revered for his thought on leadership in transforming Singapore to a globally recognized Green city. Later he was joined by Mr. M. Selvarasu, an Engineer with vast experience in designing and appraising Green Buildings worldwide.
Shah Cement invited the respected members of the Architects & Engineers, Professors & Corporate delegates to join in an evening of sharing experience and distilling wisdom inspiring us to work towards building Green, sustainable urban space/architecture.
We admire modern metropolises like Singapore for their achievements in contemporary architecture with its seamless integration in a sustainable natural setting. Modern Green cityscapes require meticulous urban planning supported by individual structures, and the initiative only becomes successful when the city dwellers participate in the shared vision.
From the speech, the audiences found the Singapore journey in this regard is quite inspiring. From a poor city-state with bare-bones infrastructure, in 50 years, Singapore has transformed to become one of the top green, sustainable, and smart city.
We believe, we have the collective will, intellectual capital, and execution capacity to transform Dhaka to a green and sustainable city in a not so distant future. We hope to go forward from this initiative.
