Following around 1,500 hours of construction, lengthy delays caused by COVID19, and temporary siting of the model, we are delighted to announce that the replica of the Bangladesh national parliament building (Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban) has been installed into the International display.
The original building is situated on an impressive 80 hectare site in the country’s capital city of Dhaka. The building’s architect was Estonian-born US citizen, Louis Khan who died in 1974, about three quarters of the way through the project to final construction completion in 1982. Construction of the building had commenced in 1961 when Bangladesh was East Pakistan.
Cockington Green Gardens has been very appreciative of the wonderful support of the Bangladesh High Commission in seeing this latest building included into the display. We look forward to the building enjoying lots of views in the years ahead and creating great interest in Bangladesh, the world’s eighth most populace nation with almost 165 million people.
