Saadman Ahmed is currently pursuing his Master’s in Architecture at the University of Waterloo (School of Architecture). Since immigrating from Bangladesh to Toronto, over ten years ago, he has been very passionate about art and culture, which eventually led him to pursue architecture as a career. He had the opportunity to travel and work in several different countries, and to be exposed to diverse styles of architecture and people from many different cultures. Having lived as both a Bengali-Muslim and a Canadian-Muslim, he started to understand the depth of his own religion from a unique perspective and its influence on architecture, and therefore, he dedicated himself to study and explore the Islamic world in Canada as part of his master’s research.
