Capitol Complex Dhaka, Bangladesh by Louis I. Kahn
Of all of the 40 countries I’ve visited this is simply the best piece of architecture and landscape given resources, time, labor, imagination, material, light, site, climate, whether ancient or modern. Some have greater spectacle, some more beautiful, some more lavish, or raw, some better kept. But nothing embodies the spirit of this country, the program, and The architects philosophy better.
