The Changing Patterns of Rural House Form in Floating and Permanent Households in Sirajganj
This article investigates the changing patterns of rural housing in Sirajganj, Bangladesh. The rural housing in Bangladesh is traditionally effected by many cultural and environmental factors. These transformations are studied along with the spatial allocation of some homestead cases, identified as permanent and floating households. The changing pattern of rural homesteads found by the field survey are explained through a comparative analysis of housing transformation of permanent and floating households. There are some factors like river erosion that establishes its importance over other traditional housing factors like religious and cultural issues. In such situation the concept of privacy, gender and religious belief have been observed playing their role in influencing housing transformation through the housing features and house forms.
