Dhaka city has been highly populated & the same time dense with both the planned & unplanned buildings. Some of them are governmental complexes which are sustainable & more open for mass gathering in comparison with the private commercial one. These commercial buildings are more than the governmental in number whereas these only serve for the spaces for the economic purposes. These growing high-rises have no scopes for public gathering whereas a proper public space is mostly needed for the people in Dhaka. Publicly interactive spaces are more important than any other things behind a successful marketplace. On the other hand, a commercial complex can bring a good example of cultural development through giving such spaces for societal activities in their complexes. This project site is in mirpur .Mirpur is physically the largest Thana of Dhaka. Mirpur was established as a sub- urban area.Since the urban spaces of the Dhanmondi Lake have transformed the lifestyle of Dhanmondi dwellers; public spaces in Mirpur can also be influential for local dwellers as it has an intense need for public spaces. Mirpur is quiet potential for public spaces, as it is known mostly after its landmarks such as National Zoo , National Botanical Garden ,National Cricket stadium, Shah Ali Mazar & National Intellectual Memorial . Although these are not completely ticket free places, the peripheral spaces of these complexes remain crowded most of the days & the eventful days show the extremity of demands for public spaces. In this project, the essence of public interactional scopes in mirpur have been enhanced in mixed use development complex which could have give some examples of creating a public gathering friendly commercial complex.
