Old dhaka is a place enriched with culture, tradition, history and a wonderful example of social bonding. But as times passes we all are losing this essence of old dhaka because of lack of space and facilities. As through this project that means after relocation of the jail when old dhaka will get e huge chunk of open space, many of community functions can be put there. But the most important thing that old dhaka people really need is that a open ' maydan' like space for community gathering as they are not aware of the feeling of having a big open space in their community. This project can be a good way to hold their tradition and cultural as I suggested to use the open community space by doing something that reflects their tradition like playing Bangladeshi games, Kawali at night, celebration of festivals, monkey games, snake charmer showing games etc. Besides these civic facilities through this project one of the major urban problems can be solved. This is the traffic congestion at the peripheral road of the site through underground passing, widen the peripheral road and specific zone for the vehicle of the Chawk Bazar.
