A new community center for displaced Rohingya women and girls is built in Camp 25—"a refugee site in a forested area of Teknaf in Bangladesh." The architect Rizvi Hassan used bamboo as the primary material for the construction. The project is titled 'Beyond Survival: A Safe Space for Rohingya Women and Girls.'
The structure consists of rooms situated in an oval shelter and a circular courtyard that is sheltered from the outside, yet has an open roof. Dwellers of this shelter can access various helpful resources such as "private spaces for counseling [and] refuge case management meetings." In addition, the shelter lends itself as a place for groups to gather, socialize, and join various skill development workshops.
