THE WORLD BANK COUNTRY OFFICE IN BANGLADESH
This project includes a new 3 story office building over an underground parking garage, located in the diplomatic quarter of Dhaka near the United Nations and other NGO's. The building takes its form from the shape of the site, which follows both the ancient lines of the sun path and the more modern Qibla that orients to Mecca. The glass facade with extensive sunshades is on the former and the traditional red tile facade with punched windows orients to the latter. Both pivot around the central atrium that is a forecourt to the mosque.
