Description Change this

When designing the National Assembly Building of Bangladesh, Kahn also designed the National Hospital. A Medical College was also included but the requirement changed into an examination room and staff hostel and was completed in 1969.

At the time Kahn also designed the Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad, on a low budget using a repetitive, ‘space and arch’ module. One can feel the continuation of Islamic architecture in this modern building.
