Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture (BAEA) is one of Bangladesh’s most prestigious and recognized awards. Bangladesh Limited (BPBL), in association with the Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB), introduced this award in 2003.
Earlier, Berger had introduced the “Berger Young Architects’ Award” to acknowledge the mark of distinction in the field of architecture which was later renamed to “Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture (BAEA)” in 2007. This year’s special 10th edition of the BAEA awards, meaning this initiative has traversed twenty years – a historic and mentionable feat.
Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture was an attempt to widen the horizon into two different groups initially, including “Berger Architects’ Award” and “Berger Young Architects’ Award,” covering Residential and Non-residential categories only. In December 2021, Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd signed an MoU with the Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) to conduct the award program. Under this MoU, both the organizations will work together to recognize the merits of architects of the country for their best creations.
IAB and Berger decided to invite projects under Open Category for the 10th cycle of the Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture to make the program more effective and successful.
Ar. Mubasshar Husain, President of the Institute of Architects Bangladesh, said, “Such award functions play an integral role in motivating architects to strive towards excellence. The Institute of Architects Bangladesh feels glad to be a part of this excellent platform introduced by Berger, designed to acknowledge the magnificent talents in the field of architecture.”
Rupali Chowdhury, Managing Director, Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd, said, “The relentless efforts our architects put into creating masterpieces often go unrecognized. The Berger Award for Excellence in Architecture – BAEA has been introduced to recognize the talents of the much deserving architects as a token of appreciation.”
Md Mohsin Habib Chowdhury, Sr General Manager, Sales and Marketing, said, “Berger has been recognizing excellence within the field of ar
chitecture since 2003 – marking a journey of 20 years. Throughout this journey, we recognized architectural talents across a number of categories. We hope to
keep this going, motivating our architects in the years to come.”
