Banani Graveyard Published on Journal of Indian Insstitute of Architects

Family members of the father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and many other significant intellectuals of the country. The design philosophy for the project was to remove the stigma associated with graveyards and to re- establish it as a place where people can feel connected to both the tangible and intangible aspects of life and death. The mosque, office, and other supporting facilities were designed in a way to merge and blend with the landscape of the graveyard. To enhance the design, carefully crafted details were integrated throughout the project. To further complement the design, purity of material expiration was preserved by means of material honesty and clarity. Fair face concreate were used for the mosque and boundary walls were complemented by the warm feeling of wooden texture used for the louvers and screens.
