Landscape Collaboration ：都市森林项目位于Prawet郊区曼谷东部边缘，离苏凡纳布国际机场约6千米处。一个生态再生项目被设计成户外展览空间，培养人们的环保意识，教导游客关于当地森林生态的知识。该项目位于一个废弃的区域，目的在于回收利用2公顷的土地以应对郊区扩张趋势、城市热岛效应和洪涝区发展问题，种植当地低地热带树种。
Landscape Collaboration ：The Urban Forest Project is located on the eastern edge of Bangkok in the suburb of Prawet, about 6 kilometers from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport. An ecological regeneration project is designed as an outdoor exhibition space to foster environmental awareness and teach visitors about local forest ecology. The project is located in an abandoned area with the aim of recycling 2 hectares of land to address suburban expansion trends, urban heat island effects and floodplain development issues, and planting local lowland tropical species.
A preliminary analysis of the abandoned area revealed signs of soil excavation and digging for illegal dumping. In early 2012, the National Petroleum Administration’s Forest Recycling Agency commissioned a landscape architect to design a reforestation space. Under the initiative of the President of the Thai Petroleum Authority and the commemoration of the protection of the royal family MahaChakriSirindhorn, they want to build an ecological forest that reflects the landscape of Thailand before, for public education and recreation. In the mid-19th century, saplings were chosen as the initial vegetation because they established areas around Bangkok, when many areas were named after the most prominent species in the area.
▼平面图 Master Plan
Construction began in May 2013, introducing approximately 37,000 cubic meters of earthwork and layering with 6000 cubic meters of planted soil to create artificial berms to provide suitable planting media and topography for new urban forests. In addition, these berms create a variety of small ecology in this relatively small space.
