Dear Mahfuz Mahi,
I start by expressing my appreciation for your project.
The desire to create a visual relationship with the outside is very appreciable and the attempt to develop an organic formalism to try to fit your intervention in the context is evident.
However, there are some elements that, in my opinion, should be treated better.
First of all, the inclusion in the landscape is not very understandable, since there are not any drawings on a scale that would allow me to understand the context and, at first glance, your theater could risk looking like a spaceship on the lake. It might make sense, but from your project report I don't think that's the intent.
A second note relates to the homogeneity of the building: in fact from the outside it has a strongly organic connotation in the use of curved shapes, while inside the partitions, in section, are rigid and orthogonal.
I invite you to continue applying yourself to continue improving your already remarkable skills.
Greetings Francesco Leoni,
Thank you for your detailed critic.
I will try to work on the sections to make the interiors organic.
Your valuable comment inspired me to work more on projects like these. Thank you for that.
This was a studio project .I had to design a Theater hall that will accommodate 50 people.
In the site there is a 200 year old banyan tree and on the east side there is a lake. In Bangladesh people performs in open sky under a banyan tree or beside river. I wanted to implement this in my design. So, I designed an amphitheater beside the banyan tree and the theater hall on the lake side. When a visitor enters through the plaza he will see the amphitheater and the banyan tree, then he will enter the theater he will see the lake as a backdrop of the stage. This will create a metaphysical connection between the visitor and the lake. Backdrop can be changed depending on the performance. After the performance when visitor exits the theater finally, he will see and connect with the lake.
Lake is a dynamic entity. The out lines of lake varies on different times of the year. My concept of form came from this. It is morphing of two circles into a organic form. The section is derived from the waves of the lake.
