PORTFOLIO


I, Nusrat Mohua, love to make architectural sketches and am enthusiastic to learn more about architecture and urban planning. When designing, I consider about geographical condition, sustainability, need of people and space to space relationship with proper functional linkage. I can perceive the image of what people desire about their places. To me, simplicity is the best way to design any space.

ENHANCING THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT OF UNBAN STREET TO DECREASE OCCURRING STREET-CRIMES :DHAKA CITY AS A CASE

TERM : 5-2

MASTER PLAN OF DHAKA CITY

TEJGAON THANA AREA

Urban people of many cities have to experience streetcrimes. The issue, though social, can be solved partly by some architectural considerations. The physical environment of an urban street, in some cases, breeds the risk of occurring street-crime. In the result of my thesis, some urban factors are disclosed, that generally can improve the physical environment of the urban street against the possibility of occurring streetcrimes.

Floor of auditorium (Ground floor plan)

This is 50 storied high-rise building. The main challenge was to establish connectivity among semi-outdoor spaces in podium-level and create a exposure of semi-public spaces towards the node located to the South-East. The tower-floors are for office zone. At the top, a sky deck was designed to experience the bird’s eye view of a city-portion.

C O N C E P T The project was to design a duplex residence having inspiring space. Waterbody can hold a space naturally. This is why a water court surrounded by semioutdoor spaces of different levels is at the center of the residence. I tended to establish an internal natural environment of a relaxation-space where family-people can have their quality time, enjoy rain or reflection of sunlight from the water, which breeds inspiration of life.

RAPID PROTOTYPING POST DISASTER EMERGENCY SHELTER:

EARTHQUAKE IN BANGLADESH: As Bangladesh lies in seismically active zone, rapid prototyping emergency shelter after earthquake is a crying need.

FINGDINGS: • Traumatized people avoiding heavy structure use light materials after shock.

• Strong structure support is needed owing to Sliding or uplifting (seismic load).

• Both horizontal and vertical elements need to be permeable for air circulation in certain level due to Strong -wind pressure.

• Basic survival ingredients are needed to survive after earthquake.
