UUrban Pavillion | Dhaka, Bangladesh | Oli Mahmud Architects

" We aimed to create a fluid and transparent public realm in an abandon park of highly condensed commercial block of Kawran Bazar area. Park will be fitted with public plaza with open exhibition space, pavilion, café and toilet. A footbridge over eastern street connects the park with nearby BegunBari Canal Development Project and neighborhood area to maximize social exchange of the place.

Decoding the adjacent traffic force into supple landscape emerging from the ground perform as a buffer between roads and the activity area of the park. Gradual green climbing at junction point provides sufficient visual setback for the passing vehicular traffic. The central plaza has an undulating floor to serve multipurpose public generation for different events. Lower altitude of the plaza surface punctured, by a green stage for open air cultural performance. A pavilion structure beneath the raised green surface houses a café, toilet and a digital display center.

To facilitate public activities, partly energy requirement designed to meet by self-generating energy sources. Eco- flooring system of plaza will create energy from public foot pressure to illuminate park at night. Glass canopy with solar panel will contribute to the energy supply system and shade the open exhibition arena. Harvesting rainwater from slope green will help to irrigate vegetations of the park.".......more
