MD MIZANUR RASHID is an architect-academic with particular interest on Historical Narrative, Digital Design and 4d capturing of cultural heritage using virtual and augmented reality tools. He is a Senior Lecturer of Architecture and the founding member and Deputy Director of AV (Architecture Vacancy) Research Lab at the School of Architecture and Built Environment at Deakin. Mizanur‘s research and teaching focuses exclusively on the pluralistic (both tangible and intangible) aspects of architecture and its narratives. He brings extensive knowledge of South Asian and Islamic architectural history with digital modelling and documentation expertise. He examines architecture at the crossroads of multiple historical narratives which have not been used to examine the architectural history of Diasporic community in Australia to date. In addition, he brings visualization capabilities provided by developments in digital heritage documentation to reveal historic buildings to a wider audience – showcasing how the building was conceived, constructed, and used –and in so doing, unravelling multiple historical layers and the connection to the broader geographical, social, and cultural domain.
