Abstract

The objective of this paper is to search for the changing housing scenario of Dhaka and investigate its effect on social interaction among the inhabitants. Changes in housing context, social structure and advancing technology, over the time, have brought a dramatic change in the social context of Dhaka. The small homogeneous society has passed through colonial regime and now stands as a city of high density apartment complexes. This paper through analyzing social autobiography and interviewing tries to coin the changes taking place. The focus was to identify the social spaces of the residents focusing on the role and use of these spaces in social interaction.
