TROP:Terrains+Open Space ：客户希望新庭院能够成为“城市焦点”，以期能够带来商业活动并引起民众的热烈反响，并与其竞争对手，即这一区域的其他高端商场，展开竞争。新的购物中心为一座拥有流体外观的两层建筑。这一购物中心建于现存建筑结构之上，其最低的地板比街道水平面高2米。从外观上来看，新购物中心自公共人行道处由停车场的通风管道一分两半，而连接两边的小型人行道作为其入口。若行人从街道上望去，其水平视线处只能看到购物中心的底部。鉴于上述情况，我们认为，我们的主要任务应该集中于购物中心的外围区域，而我们的主要目标应该是改善商场外围公共场所的人行道环境。
TROP:Terrains+Open Space ：Customers hope that the new courtyard will become the ” focus of the city” in order to bring business activities and arouse the enthusiastic response of the public, and compete with their competitors, i.e. other high-end shopping malls in this area. The new shopping center is a two-story building with a fluid appearance. The shopping center is built on top of the existing building structure and its lowest floor is 2 meters above the street level. Judging from the appearance, the new shopping center is divided into two halves by the ventilation duct of the parking lot from the public sidewalk, while the small sidewalks connecting the two sides serve as its entrance. If pedestrians look from the street, their horizontal view can only see the bottom of the shopping center. In view of the above situation, we believe that our main task should be to focus on the peripheral area of the shopping center, and our main goal should be to improve the sidewalk environment in public places outside the shopping mall.
Due to this project, the original royal palm trees were transplanted elsewhere. Therefore, when the time comes, a large amount of sunshine can be sprinkled on the ground, which is more safe for pedestrians. Greenbelts will be rebuilt on both sides of public sidewalks to achieve safe and beautiful purposes. This new design is a linear landscape slope, from the ground level to 2 meters high. Looking from the streets, the ventilation space is now completely hidden behind the green landscape, which also plays a role in preventing pedestrians from falling accidentally. Although the green landscape is not connected to the new shopping center, it can become part of the bottom of the shopping center and make pedestrians feel pleasant after seeing it. Carefully arranged shrubs and flowers can make this area spring all the year round. Compared with the old landscape before, the new landscape can help reduce the surface temperature and is more comfortable for pedestrians. At the same time, the new underground drainage system can also help reduce surface sewage, which is the main cause of stagnant water in nearby streets. in addition, excess water can also be collected to irrigate plants.
Except for the green landscape, all other parts of this area are now used as walking areas. The clean and tidy artificial landscape provides a simple walking environment for pedestrians on the ground, including the disabled. The motorcycle parking area will be removed so that there will be no more motorcycles in this area and it will be safer for pedestrians. The roadside trees on both sides of the street will be very neat and can provide shade for pedestrians in hot summer days in Bangkok. In the past, pedestrians could only use the closed footbridge below the train track to cross the block. The new landscape enables pedestrians to walk on the ground and approach green plants. We believe that this can make people closer to nature and communicate with others.
Upon completion, this new landscape will become a model for other sidewalk designs in Bangkok. At that time, pedestrians can pass through this area safely and conveniently. Car drivers can take a glance at green during driving to reduce the pressure caused by traffic jams. Passers-by can stop and take a green photo to share with friends and relatives. Various activities organized often can enrich the life of pedestrians. With the help of our customers, we can finish what has never happened in Bangkok. Although this is not a grand design, and this area is only a corner of Bangkok’s public sidewalk, we believe that everyone can make great changes with their participation. In order to make this design a reality, we also hope our neighbors can think twice about their real estate. If everyone can cooperate, we believe we can create a better sidewalk system for everyone in Bangkok.
