JalaPur is a mosaic composed of islands linked to each other by waterways. It is developing in the context of the maritime urbanization where each island is divided into completely self-sufficient blocks. Each island that we can call a "city", includes sub -autonomous systems where life flourishes with ease. It offers an intuitive and responsive architecture in accordance with the environmental values, traditional and peculiar to this part of the world ​- The Gulf of Bangladesh. The project takes on a significant challenge to include a human dimension, which suggests inviting guests to interact with water. The goal is to create a new way to live and work with water without radically changing our lifestyle.
