STUDENT CHARETTE

The 3-day student charette is a chance for the next generation to engage with the ideas of “Blue and Green and Culture” in Bangkok’s “Green Lung” of Bangkrachao in Samutprakan district. Charette participants will benefit the knowledge shared by a strong team of local and international academics and professionals who will be involved in the charette program and judging of students’ work.

Characterised by its lush green landscape, Bangkrachao is in fact a vulnerable landscape in the sense that it is home to a quickly diminishing estuarine landscape as well as a comparatively small local community living in the gaze of hyper-dense Bangkok and its thirst for urban expansion. Less than five minutes by boat from Klong Toey Port and to the south Bangkok’s central business and retail districts, Bangkrachao is a remnant of a greener past that currently provides the residents of Bangkok with much needed access green open space.
