The faculties planned a sudden tour before introducing the final project. After nagging and complaining all the way about waking up early, about how hot the weather is and about how this is not a perfect day for a tour, it was a quality trip. We did not go too far from the city, it’s a 2-hour drive to Rajendrapur, few miles from Gazipur town. The landscape work is still on-going at BRAC CDM, so they decided that it would be a perfect place to know more details about the project. Starting from the type of plants and trees, flowers that attracts the bees, water bodies, pavements, types of shrubs herbs and grass etc. we did little research works.
Surprisingly, the designer was Aupi Karim, she is amazing! The landscape is very delicately and passionately done. However, some shortcomings were there. May be the design decision had to take that way or maybe I am too young to understand. Altogether it was a beautiful place to enjoy the day, except for the scorching sun which got me tanned.
Starting from a welcoming lobby, we were straight directed towards the dinner for the not-so-very posh tea. I had coffee instead. Then we started along with the tour guide to analyse the details.
For the outfit, I chose to wear a plain sheer top with a healthy dose of prints. I usually don’t drape myself with prints and am very conscious about this sector. The trick to avoiding looking slapdash specially when you are heading to harried morning classes or tours is sticking to solids. However, mixing prints and solid is a smart decision and since it’s summer, so why not a little bit of print on your neck for the day? For the bottom part, I wore my regular skinny jeans paired with summer flip flops. I had to choose comfort over everything. For a little bling, I added a statement long chain from H&M.
Unfortunately, could not cover the whole site as we had to get back to our working desk. Finals were approaching. However, the whole visit was a great experience and I think I am lucky enough to visit one of her works. Looking forward to more journeys ahead.
