Kashef Chowdhury was born in Dhaka, growing up in Bangladesh and the Middle East before graduating in architecture from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 1995.

After working with architect Uttam Kumar Saha, he established the practice URBANA the same year. He has a studio-based practice whose works find root in history with strong emphasis on climate, materials and context - both natural and human. Works range from conversion of ship and low cost raised settlements in 'chars' to training centre, mosque, art gallery, museum, residences and multi-family housing to corporate head offices.

He was twice finalist in the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and has won first prize in Architectural Review's AR+D Emerging Architecture Award 2012.
