Bangkok has been in constant flux with respect to its natural systems. With the result the already existing structure of the city is under strain and is on the verge of giving way. As a result of the unprecedented climate change and the heavy rainfalls falling on the city, temporary solutions or rigid engineered defences will eventually be taken over.
In order for it to have a stable, sustainable future, Bangkok must look back to its past of living harmoniously with water. The current problems faced by Bangkok can only be addressed by acknowledging the fact that change is an inherent part of natural systems and recognizing/ accepting these changes will help the city adapt to fluctuations.
