Dr Mohammad Habib Reza
Architect and Architectural Historian
Mohammad Habib Reza is an architect and architectural historian. He obtained his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Khulna University in 2001 and PhD in architectural history and theory from Nottingham Trent University, UK in 2013. Later he joined as a Research Fellow in Nottingham Trent University and was involved in research projects funded by Nottingham Trent University and the Ministry of Heritage and Culture of Oman, for the documentation of traditional oasis settlements in Central Oman towards the delivery of culturally and technically informed Heritage Management Plans. He was a founder member of the ArCHIAM centre.
His interest focuses on the geometric and morphological development of architecture plus settlements and their connection with cultural, social and religious processes. In his PhD he proposes the morphological development pattern of ancient and medieval Buddhist architecture of Bengal, which is also his prime field of interest. His research further explores the connection between Bengal and other cultures and their architectural styles. Presently Reza has close working relationships with academic researchers in Europe, North America and Asia.
