from enclave to public realm:

old tejgaon airport as an urban retreat “WHAT IS UNIQUE TO CITIES, IS THEIR GENERATION OF AN AREA OF SOCIAL L I F E - THE PUBLIC REALM - U N K N O W N I N O T H E R S E T T L E M E N T F O R M S � LYN H. HOFLAND [SOCIAL LIFE IN THE PUBLIC REALM: A REVIEW]

Public places have nowadays become the ultimate solution to solve the complex social, economic and environmental challenges of an urban area. Dhaka city, with the burden of its ever-growing population, is deprived, not only of basic services, but also of public spaces, parks and playgrounds turning the residents of this mega city into machines in the concrete jungle. On the other hand, there are some large unused or underused spaces that have become 'enclave' in terms of visual, physical and psychological inaccessibility of city people. FAO (2008) pointed out that Dhaka city has 09.45% open space of which city parks occupy 0.89%, urban forestry 0.02% and 0.90% belongs to gardens. According to the Chief Town Planner of Dhaka City Corporation (2003), an ideal city needs 20% area covered by trees but there is only 8% vegetation in the city. Currently, almost 15 million dwellers of Dhaka city enjoy limited services from various public spaces that are inadequate and incapable of serving properly. Moreover, these spaces are either not accessible for all or are simply not safe due to various reasons. Tejgaon old airport, on the other hand, is a vast amount of land leftover in the center surrounded by dense areas. Although it has a potential to become the largest green open space in the city, the site, however, is becoming a problem for the surroundings instead. Lack of integration creates complications like deficiency in social interaction, recreation and community activity; solid, high walls discourages people to use the adjacent pedestrians which results in less activity, rendering the area as a dead zone after office hours. On top of that, the site has clearly divided Dhaka North into two giant isolated islands, as it is mostly restricted for mass people, making it both physically and psychologically an enclave space that has almost no active use for public.

Art factory

an inclusive platform for ‘pop-culture’ Popular Culture, also referred to as ‘Pop-Culture’, reflects and represents both social & individual expressions of a certain time or era. It contains the elements of both traditional and ‘cutting-edge’ culture, thus creating a strong bond among various generations. And only a strong connection between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ can provide a culture the strength to thrive and evolve. In my project, I have searched for a proper way to establish an ‘inclusive’ platform that can nurture this nature of pop-culture. The cultural and recreational scenario of Khulna is going through a major shift, but lacking the opportunities to cope with it. This is one of the crucial reasons I chose this city as my project site. A platform to explore & practice different phenomena of popular culture will provide a boost to shape the future cultural identity of the city. That is why my project ‘Art Factory’ will be the perfect solution to meet the needs of this thriving city.

Site Location: Shib-Bari Morh, Khulna. Site Area: 80,200.5 sq.ft.

rephrasing ‘apart’ment

enriching the quality of life BANGLADESH is predicted to become a majority-urban nation by 2030. This dramatic transformation from an agrarian to an urban society calls for a robust public policy reorientation. With the world's urban population crossing the 50 percent threshold in 2007, urbanization has become one of the most anthropogenic forces on the Earth. By 2050, 75 percent of the world population will live in urbanized areas. This is having a direct influence on the types of dwelling that populations live in, boosting the numbers of inhabitants of apartments. Apartment dwelling is on the rise at the expense of houses, and more people are living in smaller properties as property prices are more expensive in urban areas. These multi-storied apart(ments) are steadily transforming the landscape and lifestyle of urban dwellers in the major cities in Bangladesh arising the critical debate of social segregation, individualism, isolation vs. the emerging need of compact living. High-rise apartments occupy an ambiguous position in contemporary discussions of urbanism. While allowing for densely populated walking environments, they are widely seen as culturally inappropriate and, whether based on theories of life cycle or lifestyle, especially unsuitable for families with children. The design is based on the exploration of urban complexities in terms of high-rise living and on the different socio-spatial impact, economical forces, governance and environmental issues behind an architectural concept on vertical living. The sense of dissatisfaction that is prevalent among the high-rise dwellers can only be mitigated by the variables of the Quality of life. Those are the issues that this complex has tried to approach: 1. By providing sufficient access to amenities. 2. By accommodating smooth access to job locations. 3. By furnishing ample access to nature. 4. By analyzing straightforward access to schools and other educational activities. 5. By implementing various types of community activities.

exploring expo-centre upper je s s ore road, kh uln a

“Reciting the Poetry of Nature: Shundarban”. An exposition center is important for a host city to boost up an international awareness. It is helpful to increase in tourism and business. It may act as a catalyst for civic development whether it could be redevelopment or upgrade. So I intended to create a built form that shall become iconic and represent the city’s identity. An expo center in Khulna city should be a futuristic icon that would represent the unique characteristics of the locality. And to me it is “the shundarban” that is the most unique feature of this southern region. Shundarban, “A poetry of nature” as we may call it, resembles many inimitable physiognomies. Among them, my view was to represent the floating landscape of Shundarban and its unique circulation pattern.

Design of a residence

dwelling for inspiration

A residence is a complete functional project where linkages are very important as well as climate. My idea was to invite nature in the form. An outward courtyard and tree holds activiies. There I used concrete as building material. I emphasized on climatic solution thus i oriented the form south facing. Master bed and child bed both gets south for summer. Exposed stair is for swimming pool area.
