BKK 2600 studies the flooding phenomenon in densely populated regions of South East Asia, using the city of Bangkok as a case study. Considering the phenomenon of floods, erosion and sinking of ground, the type of development chosen by the city of Bangkok seems increasingly to be out of step with the idea of a sustainable development.
As part of a funded project different possibilities of reintroducing water in the future city development were identified to promote innovations in accordance with the environmental and natural DNA of the site. How could the city of Bangkok reconnect with the origins of an amphibious city? How to propose a modern development model in accordance with local culture and geographical conditions? These were leading questions of proposing a futuristic vision of the urban agglomeration.
