Studio workshop with “Kyoto Institute of Technology” (Japan)
The Golden Triangle It is an area of around 367,000 square miles (950,000- km2) that overlaps the mountains of four countries of Southeast Asia: Burma, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. The Golden Triangle also designates the confluence of the Ruak River and the Mekong river, since the term has been appropriated by the Thai tourist industry to describe the nearby junction of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar.
From the Tibetan Plateau this river runs through China’s Yunnan province, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam established the Mekong River Commission in 1995 to assist in the management and coordinated use of the Mekong’s resources. In 1996 China and Burma became “dialogue partners” of the MRC and the six countries now work together within a cooperative framework.
For the Bicycle Commuting, the location is on the Makkasan district. In the past, Bang-Phlat was an inner part of Phra Nakhon district which called Bang-Phlat district. Then it was reduced as a Subdistrict of theBang-kok-noi, Thonburi. Later on there was an integration between Thonburi province and PhraNakhon into a metropolitan, Bangkok. Surrounding the site consist of many building types. Most ofthem, Commercial type is the most that located surrounding the site and consist of residential type suround the commercial type.
For the Building, I want to make interaction between building and track. people become a part of the building when come to the building. So, the overall of space is a route. The people can ride in every space. And also people can see the activities in difference direction not just only normal view. People can closely perceive the experience. I use the oval shape for the building because this form has more surface to interact. And it can put together that is an advantage of symmetry form.
