Focusing on designing small towns, Kazi Khaleed Ashraf and Ehsan Khan explored new possibilities for Mymensingh town with the participants. Participants worked in groups to study and design different parts of the town or brainstorm on different aspects of thinking about small towns in Bangladesh. A key thought was: given the newly constructed multi-lane highway from Dhaka, how Myneshingh would evolve around the new improved connection with the capital and if the town is ready to take the hit of it. Michael Sorkin and other visiting faculty intervened and joined in the discussions and reviews time to time.
