Project name: Integration_of_riverfront_with_new_city:Taking advantage of Shifted Dhaka Central Jail
The Dhaka Central Jail has been shifted to Keraniganj, leaving behind a vast open space of historic importance. For the People of old dhaka this shift offered a vast scope of developing designed open space and necessary public facilities. Using this scope, there is also a potential of connecting the riverfront of Buriganga with the New city. This integration can be done in many ways. In the conjested situation of Old dhaka, development model of some other cities will not work. Academy should come forward to propose some creative solution. The project is given to Level 4 Term 1 students as a challenge to design their city connecting past to move for future. The first phase was survey presentation. From GIS map and field survey students gathered information on three headlines: Landuse , Traffic and transport analysis, Open space and amenities. This survey was done extensively by systematic observation, interview and data analysis. They will study successful urban design and then propose design solution for the project. Detail and innovative solution for designing in the Historic yet organic context of Old dhaka is an important point to be considered.
