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.
