The Friendship Centre in Gaibandha, Bangladesh, was built for the local NGO Friendship, which provides services for poor citizens of the region. Built by Dhaka-based architect Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury, it was designed to provide an inviting and accessible space for those who use the Centre's services. This book looks closely at the Centre's design and construction. Situated on two acres, the complex is designed to blend with the natural environment while echoing the ruins of Mahasthan, a Buddhist dwelling from the third century BC, located nearby. It is constructed and finished primarily of one material local handmade bricks, and individual pavilions, courtyards, pools, and green spaces are woven throughout. The result, as evidenced in the book's photographs by celebrated Swiss architectural photographer Helene Binet, is a building that is a celebration of the essential and simple beauty.
