Dhaka city is a 400 years story of culture, festivals and traditions. By time Dhaka expands physically, but the enriched tradition of living doesn’t carry out properly. Hence Pink city model town, situated at the prime location of east Baridhara besides 300ft purbachal highway, grows in an unhealthy manner of neighborhood. Community interaction and relationship and proper growth of mental health are straight ignored in the design of phase 1 and 2. Whereas in old Dhaka the neighborhood bonding and essence of ‘mohollah’ still alive. Social aspects of old Dhaka ‘mohollah’ are breathing through the spatial flow of ‘mohollahs’. In planned residential areas the essence of community faded away. The core idea of this project is to reinterpretation of the social bonding of very own old Dhaka ‘mohollah’ in the portion of phase 3 of Pink city model town. In the context of the site create the flow of community spaces in respect of old Dhaka ‘mohollah’ –is the aim of this project.
