Bangkok: The Three Ecologies

April 5, 2010

Project by Alexandra Milo and Claudia Garay.

A collaborative urban design project, “Bangkok: the Three Ecologies” addresses the cultural and social gap along the San Saeb Canal in Bangkok, focusing on the community of Ban Krua. By designing an “exquisite corpse” structure, the space provides areas for silk weaving and other recreational activities, becomes a beacon during kite fighting season, collects rainwater during monsoon season, creates an awareness of the community, and generates new economies for the community.
