REVITALIZATION: Sustainable Urban Waterfront Development Through Symbiosis of Ecology and Economy

Academic Project | Level 4 Term 1 | Duration: 9 Weeks
Group Project (Members of 4)
Site: Mawa Ferry Ghat, Munshiganj (Near Padma Bridge), Bangladesh

With the construction of the Padma Bridge, a rapid dramatic change is expected to take place in the lives of the millions in bridge-adjacent areas in Mawa. However, the construction of the Padma bridge somehow created a negative impact on the lives of the local people of Mawa as the transportation routes were changed, forests were damaged and the ferry ghats closed operation. Hence arises the need of riverfront development at Mawa, a place which was renowned for Hilsha fish, wholesale fish market and a recreational area.
In this project, we proposed a framework which we believe will develop the riverfront area in a sustainable way. We call it Symbiosis between Ecology & Economy. The framework is designed in such a way that it can reintroduce eco-tourism to the site as well as mark Hilsha as a matter of celebration. The first phase of the project includes the framework proposal and macro-scale interventions. Detail designs and urban interventions are executed in the second phase of the project.
