MetadataShow full item record
The decision to construct women’s sports complex in every divisional headquarter is a part of the women empowerment program by the Government of Bangladesh. Playing sports will help women to be physically fit and it also helps lift their self-esteem, making them less prone to social dangers and more likely to develop a positive mind set towards life and set goals to achieve them in the long run. Rangpur Women’s Sports Complex is the next in line to have been proposed by the Government of Bangladesh under the authority of National Sports Council. As instructed by the government, the complex shall have outdoor sports such as football, cricket, athletics etc. and also have indoor sports such as swimming, volleyball, handball, badminton etc. and a gymnasium. Since Rangpur is the new division, it will be subjected to development. The Sports Complex is one of the many infrastructures to be built along with redevelopment of stadiums in Netrokona and Nilphamari. The aim of this paper is to analyze the site and assess the programs in proposal with respect to the local area and propose a design for the Sports Complex.
