Architects Regional Council of Asia (ARCASIA) is an organization of the seventeen National Institutes of Architects from the Asian region who have united together to foster friendly, intellectual, artistic, educational and scientific ties and maintain professional contacts, mutual cooperation and assistance among Member Institutes. Each of these member countries share some common traits being an Asian and also are rich with their individual heritage.

The architectural heritage of all the ARCASIA member countries is rich with the glory of the ancient wisdom of building science as well as with the continuation of those inspirations reflected in the architectural built forms of the present day.

The ARCASIA HERITAGE is a portfolio of some heritage architectural projects from the ARCASIA member countries. It is a collection documenting ten heritage projects from each of the seventeen member countries of ARCASIA. These projects have been selected such that they signify a particular period of architectural achievement, covering from ancient to modern age. The total book is divided into two volumes, the first one containing eight countries while the second volume includes nine countries, all of them being arranged in alphabetical order.

This publication may remain as an inspiration and a source of invaluable knowledge for all throughout Asia and the world. And it's kind of a long overdue task considerately done mainly by some of the enthusiasts in Bangladesh. The book is edited by Dr. Abu Sayeed M. Ahmed, Head of the Department of Architecture of The University of Asia Pacific, Bangladesh, arranging contents from all the 17 member countries of the ARCASIA.
