From an agrarian settlement to a mega polis with snarling traffic, Bangkok, like many other cities, has harmed the relation between human and ecology. Our proposal aims at rejuvenating this relation by sensitizing Bangkokians towards water. Our vision for redeveloping Bangkok is based on the idea that spaces for collective and public integrated with water sensitive systems will make Bangkok resilient, Bangkokians aware about water systems and enhance its urban experience.
As Bangkok floods for various reasons the overarching idea has been integrated in these four strategies : Rejuvenate, Soak, Protect, Adapt to respond to each flood level. We envision that the prototypes designed would be adopted all over Bangkok to achieve a city sensitized towards water.
Meaning for reference:
Spaces for Collective: Any space meant for public gathering or leisure with or without social and cultural importance.
Water sensitive systems: Water systems that are ecologically sensitive and help in creating a balance in water ecology
