Thailand Water Architecture Workshop
Thailand has a long history with living in flood plains, and has many vernacular solutions to protect against flooding. Yet, in recent years Thailand got devastated by floods. This workshop will analyze the traditional measures against flooding, such as floating fishermen villages and stilt homes. Gained insights will be used as a case study for a small village in central Thailand. On urban scale we will study how water communities can connect to the land, on building scale we will analyze floating buildings and on detail scale we’ll try to make a small raft like floating body.
