The minimalist design is a nod to its natural surroundings
The Miazi Bari Jame mosque (2013-15) in Chandpur is a small community mosque designed and built for the locals through participatory design process. Project Architects: Mohammad Rabiul Islam & Nehleen Ahmed Chowdhury, GoAat (group of architects and thinkers). The mosque is located in a small neighborhood that has a great sense of community and responsibility towards each other. Devoid of any large domes or tall minarets, the Miazi Bari mosque is a contemporary expression of architecture in Bangladesh that encompasses spiritual activities within a simple form that becomes a part of the surrounding landscape and local context. The breathing envelopes of the mosque provide excellent camouflage to blend in with the surroundings, The project has received commendation in IAB Design Award 2018 in socio-cultural category.
