Inflorescence: Flora and Flood City Festival
Designing Resilience in Asia 2018 / Honorable Mention Award

Bangkok is a city with high degrees of extreme orientations.There are poor people who live the slums, Thai royal families who might be one of the richest royal families in the world, migrant workers who move to Bangkok as blue-collar worker ,and large amount of tourists from all over the world, there are novel and fashionable shopping malls and high-class hotels, simultaneously existing Thai vernacular houses. There is only a wall between the high-end hotel and the slum, which is like a parallel world. The quiet temple and the noisy street vendor are separated by a wall and coexist well. Tolerance of gender and tolerance of public space occupied by vendors,these have demonstrated Bangkok’s inclusive and flexible resilience.
