dc.description.abstract There are no fully equipped disabled centers in Bangladesh. There are certain specialized rehabilitation centers such as BRCT (Bangladesh Rehabilitation Centre for Trauma Victims), CRP (Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed) Bangladesh and BPKS (Bangladesh Protibandhi Kallyan Somity) etc, but none that serve a whole range of disabilities. Rehabilitation centers that serve the visually and hearing impaired as well as people unable to speak have yet to be established in Bangladesh. Their absence in the country has meant that a portion of the society has remained unattended and ignored. Despite medical science having invented innumerous treatment methods, including therapeutic methods, recovery through nature, and recovery through human interaction this portion of our society have yet to receive any proper medical attention and social consideration. I think, as an architect, I have a responsibly and the capability to address these problems through designing a niche which will provide extensive facilities to the disabled. In Bangladesh about 1.8 crore people (United Nations ESCAP Survey Feb 2011) with different sorts of disabilities live around us while we do nothing and keep silent as if to deny their existence in the society. Anyone who feels compassionate about them, perhaps, may sand them to a distant rehabilitation centre, far from their family. An unknown environment makes them feel deserted from society and family further segregating them from the society. So, there should be no doubt about the necessity of this project (a neighborhood centre for the disabled) as it benefits that part of the society which has been neglected for so long. en_US
