MERGE | Uniting the Charlands

A collaboration with Andrea Gulyas and the KieranTimberlake Research Studio

The culmination of research surrounding the char-lands of Bangladesh.  Understanding the chars to be transient land-forms, the research sought to uncover a method for improving life for char-dwellers.  Emphasis was placed on the roles that NGOs could play in this improvement.  The final design proposal focuses on the need to improve the connectivity between char-land and shabek-land, proposing a multifunctional facility that challenges vernacular construction methods.  Char Bilashpur and Dohar were used as a case study to illustrate how the proposal could actually be deployed.
