CITF 2020 | Collected Memory of the City Dwellers

An excellent project with a purpose and vision- holds the true sense of public participation.

Child-friendly space: A safe place to play, learn and participate

The project is designed to address children's specific needs in the refugee camp environment, and to give them a chance to just be children again.

Aloon Lar Shay Pha la (Come and see us) : Display and production center for Rohingya women

The display center offers a platform for the Rohingya women to create, showcase and sell handmade products to the visitors. The process of the making of the center was focused more on the participation of the users and the artisans than the usual top-down method.

An Enclosure of Permeability and Aperture: ARCASIA Pavilion at Dhaka

A public exhibition is evidently based on experiential images, images that create memories. The ARCASIA Exhibition pavilion in Gulshan Park is conceived as a poetic response to the city dweller’s desire to gather and meet in a vibrant atmosphere that can be experienced in multiple ways.

Caught in Circumstances: An Integrated Community Centre in Kutupalong Refugee Camp

For more than two years, the Bangladeshi host community has been sharing its resources with the Rohingya refugees in the world's largest camp in Kutupalong. The recent spike in violence in Myanmar's Rakhine State has become the new source of tension in the camp. With support from humanitarian organizations, this community centre is designed to relieve tension and build trust between the majority and minority groups in the camp.

Beyond Survival: A Safe Space for Rohingya Women and Girls

The harrowing experience of conflict, displacement and associated stresses have disproportionately affected the Rohingya women and girls, who need urgent supports. Safe Space for Women and Girls, serving as a platform, allows Rohingya women and girls to advocate for basic services. The facility also plays a key role in providing women’s access to community support networks while strengthening social relationship.

Zulrin: A Weekend Retreat Fused in a Bucolic Landscape

The project blatantly symbolizes a fusion between urban-rural environment. Designed for a family from crowded capital, who are deprived of fresh air and sense of freedom and very much willing to reconnect with the bucolic life. The core idea of this built environment is to preserve the essence of the simplicity of our ancestors, once had back in their times and transcend some of that to the next generations, hence named after client’s two children as “Zulrin House”.

Breaking the Mould: An Apartment Dissolving the ‘In-between’

Real estate development is principally governed by sale ability and the set standard is somehow devoid of innovation. Meeting those set criteria is challenging; but is it worth of doing? The design inception phase of the following project involves intense negotiation and introduction of some apparently unorthodox ideas to the developers. The ideas were eventually shaped and sensibly appreciated. Thus, it sets an atypical example of developer’s intention who is very eager to go beyond their long-attained standards.

ত্রিধা :স্মৃতি, সম্পর্ক, ঐতিহ্য (Tridha: Memory, Relationship, Tradition)

Trida is a new house for an extended family. Situated in a fast transforming rural town, the project concept evolves from negotiation between client's demand of modern lifestyle and past memories.

Women Friendly Space at Rohingya Refugee Camp

This multi-purpose women center in the Rohingya refugee camp at Cox's Bazar is designed to empower vulnerable women using architecture as an ethical tool.
