reconstituting the historic centre of Macau Macau has been a unique urban setting with Portuguese settlement and urban fabric mixed with the Chinese culture and living. Over the history began from the 16th C Macau has developed as an Portuguese colonial city, having south European type of urban places like square, plaza consisted with church, cathedral and civic structures. This project's aim was to reassigning roles to some public centres along the 'heritage trail', that they have developed in the history as urban places of Macau

PROJECTING FUTURE SAI YING PUN

source: Frank Leeming, Street studies in Hong Kong, 1977

Sai Ying Pun is one of the first settlement in Hong Kong, beginning from the oldest days of it has grown along with the history of Hong Kong's urban development. By time decay as an old settlement SYP bears issues like contrast between old and new pattern of life and neighborhood environment. This project aimed to focus those issues of urban renewal in finding a design process using an available URA development site as a site for design development

a dialogue between old and new This is about taking a new approach to reinvent street life and streets for neighborhood and city as well. The contemporary large scale development always ignore the power of street and street interface, and practice of gigantic solid mass with impermeable street-scape is triggering the loss of urban space. By integrating the existing scale and interface of street with new development program can provide us sustainable and responsive urban places and community life.

enhancing the public realm The project aimed to define and create some new spots in Sai Ying Pun old and dense urban context. The way was to use this locality's inherent street life. Major focus was the Center street and Center Market area, which with a long trail of use and activity is the major node and landmark for the locality. We enhanced that node by defining a plaza space at 2nd street corner. But the most intervention was creating a large and multi-use neighborhood court at the center of site, which is joined by the mtr access point and surrounded by a realm of convenient shop and neighborhood commercials. This can fulfill the need of a interactive open space in this locality. Community court for the residences of apartments has been created at the podium top, another level of community interaction and activity.

Design problem The project was to understand the functional aspects of a residential building for its inhabitants. It was a dwelling for a blind person who is musician by his work. The site was on the sea shore and should house a residence for the blind person who will be able to work and live there alone.

sound is the key

regular sound : rest/sleep less sound : service no sound : music

Concept Sound had a vital role in this particular situation. A blind person's main sense of observation is auditory. He has a sharp sense of sound. Being a musician that man's perception of sound was more pronounced. And when that blind musician was supposed to live on the shore of a sea, a constant source of rhythm, that would definitely have impact on him. Idea The important link of sound was tried to achieve as the key-factor for understanding different spaces. Different zones as: rest, service and work were distinguished with different intensity of sound from the sea, as like: the zone to rest with direct seaborne sound, the zone to meet and serve with moderate and the zone to 'work with music' with complete isolation.

Formal expression While visual disability of the man was considered for functional aspects, his identity as an artist was symbolized in expression of the building. It had inclined walls getting an overall look of expanding phenomena of creative activities. Concrete was taken as the building material for construction of external and internal walls and as outlook of solidity and grandness of an artist. Openings had been engraved carefully from that solid concrete with consideration for control of light and sound at different areas. Consideration was for designing an efficient building for an isolated disable man. But at the same time it was tried to symbolize the building with the identity of it's single dweller, not by his disability: his blindness, rather by highlighting that man's ability and work: his identity as a musician.

Academic Project | Project Yr.: Level 5, Term 2 (Studio X), Project Duration: 12 weeks

site: Tongi, Dhaka, Bangladesh issue

The center of gravity of downtown activities for Greater Dhaka city is gradually shifting north to Joydevpur and Eastward. The inter-district public transportation for north-east bound districts (Greater Mymensingh) should be restricted at the edge of the greater Metropolitan to avoid more congestion at inner city traffic. Rather an interchange to city bus service will provide the link to the centre of the city.

The formal expression was reflecting the building's function of mobility. Large spanned trusses and curved roof was the visual impression of man's development of technologies. It also gave the impression of urban morphology for the newcomers coming from countryside. Access Different overpass and underpass was placed to act as intake points for the pedestrians. Also provision for easy access of cab and private vehicles were made.

All services under one roof can ensure fluent and efficient circulation for the vehicles of different modes and their users. The terminal would act as an important interchange hub for the transportation arteries at the edge of the city, while marking the access point to the metropolis

A structural system was needed to develop, which would cover a large span of 135' with extension of about 72' on each side. Curved bonesection were used as members to develop a three-dimensional and composite truss system to covered the required space- volume of 134' by 75' .

cng filling station & conversion workshop land

7012 sft

Supporting the demand of the new stream of fuel, that the country has adopted in recent years, many CNG (converted natural gas) stations have been installed in and around Dhaka city. A set of new rule, guidelines and different criteria for this service complex fixed a different type of conception and ideas rather than previous feeling stations. Being a totally technical and highly hazardous building type, perfection and efficiency was the first criterion. This feeling station is a part of the CNG service complex comprising a conversion workshop and feeling station and passengers' shop. The conversion part on the left portion of the complex had the control office, workshop and storage. While the right portion comprises with the compressor machine room, storage cascade, cash counter and shop, office for the administrative purposes and toilet for passengers.
