Bamiyan Cultural Center Design Competition

Bamiyan Cultural Centre – can indeed be people’s center nourishing cultural excellence. The center adopts the language of USED SPACES. It acts as a vehicle to further augment the traditional skills. It extracts insight from vernacular forms observed in Bamiyan old bazaar, Shrines, Buddhist caves, clusters of the fortified-perforated wall, circumambulation paths, g, courtyards, etc. Based on the brief and studying the range of societal issues, architectural interpretation of vernacular forms has led to the pluralism of USED space- An attribute similar to Bamiyan lifestyle. Shedding the elitist attitude, the designed spaces celebrate the popular- traditional and relevant adaptation seen in the city in last few decades- making it PEOPLE’S CENTRE that nourishes the culture, fostering cross-cultural awareness and broader goals of peacebuilding and reconciliation.
