dc.description.abstract A community is a social unit and often shares a sense of place. People living in any particular community tend to define the social ties between the people of that community as important as their identity, practice or even their roles in the social institutions. Thus every community at some point needs a platform to gather around for different purposes, which makes such place the centre of the community. These centres completely depend on the characteristics of the community, the centre is consists of all the facilities that a community requires in order to enhance its people socially, economically, physically, culturally and even making the community more sustainable. We call such place “Community Centre”. Now if we look at the current situation of the community centres in our Dhaka city, there is not much that it offers to its respective communities and that is where the thought of rethinking the concept of a community centre came from. How it should be for a particular community that is densely populated. Thus this write up will lead one to understand the aspects that has been worked on to rethink the concept of a community centre and how it shaped up to be one that represents its respective community. en_US
