Co. Creation Architects

Khondaker Hasibul Kabir and Suhailey Farzana are architects by training. Kabir has a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and a

master’s in architecture in landscape design from the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom. He teaches landscape and architecture at BRAC University. Suhailey pursued her bachelor of architecture and master’s in development studies from BRAC University, Bangladesh. She studied leadership at the University of Vermont in the United States as part of a learning exchange programme. However, Kabir and Suhailey prefer to introduce themselves as community architects. They co-founded Co.Creation.Architects (CCA) in 2015. CCA is an architectural and landscape design studio based in Jhenaidah, Bangladesh. With a trust that people living in poverty and wild plants have been working in the background for the survival of our cities and environment, CCA intends to engage with these two “invisible” yet important communities. It believes that if these groups are valued and encouraged, the world would be a better habitat for all human and non-human

communities. CCA provides advisory and technical support to community-led housing and city planning processes, and also to ecological landscape initiatives. Kabir and Suhailey are the co-founders of Platform of Community Action and Architecture (POCAA), which has been active in Bangladesh since 2013. They work regionally in Asian countries through Community Architects

Network (CAN) and Asian Coalition for Housing Rights (ACHR).
