The Design approach puts the local environment and people at the centre of the dynamic and recognizes the vital importance of their interaction and response in optimizing the richness of the places over time. In Bamiyan, the natural forces have played a dominant role in forming its urban fabric, it is well obvious that the valley going towards the cliff, had a strong influence on the tissue of the city, forming both linear and central forces in the city. this urban fabric mixture which was considered as the DNA of the city is used as a base for the design concept. Using these lines in the design will enhance the traditional and the sensational identity of the city to create a project that fits into the context and becomes a lasting legacy for Bamiyan.
