Project Area

THE PLACE Bangkok had been developed along the Chao Phraya River. The system of concentric cannels on the eastern shore has accompanied the growth of the city. The Khlong Rob Krung built in 1783 constituted the fortified limit of the original city. Since its establishment in 1782, land transportation had not been developed well in Bangkok for first 60 years. Water transportation was mostly developed, allowing the city grow along the Chao Phraya River. The data provided gives us information about canal closures from 1914 to 1967. Research showed that Bangkok’s contemporary canals are influenced by different problems. Towards the end of the 1970’s the population of Bangkok began to grow at an extremely rapid rate. An increase in population leads to an increase in resource use and waste. As a result of this, the canals have become extremely polluted and even harmful to the health of local communities. It will be interesting to see how these population effects on the greater urban context impact the canals and their use today and in the future of Bangkok planning. 1932

Reopen of Navigli project

After 1979 plan, city administration launched a competition to define the project for the former Turia river bed, saving its morphology. The project also aims at the requalification of the city layout. After 1957 disastruous flood, the river was made empty, taking the waters to an artificial pool. The project embodies a green park with different ecological systems. A tributary canal of Turia river has benn used to cross the park and feed the inner lake, filling part of the former lake. A terracing system has been created in order to create paths and solve the natural difference of height of the soil. All the paths lead towards the water stream, in order to simulate water flows. Regaining the bed of the river, together with the creation of a new park, make this area an actual green lung for the area. It’s an occasion to reinterpretate the past.

By the 1950s it had become customary in the Netherlands to fill in unused waterways to make way for motor traffic. The covered of moat started from 1968 and the motorway was opened in stages from 1973. In 1999 the Utrecht city council decided that it would indeed restore the historic city moat. In January 2002 the new canal was connected to the remaining city moat and water flowed into it. In March 2010 the motorway at the bottom of the former moat was closed to all traffic. It was only late October 2015 that the digging really started. The edges of the canal were placed and the quay walls were finished. In just a two months the entire 30 metres wide canal seemed to simply emerge again.

By demolishing an elevated freeway, Cheonggyecheon Canal Restoration Project created both ecological and recreational benefits along a 3.6-mile (5.8 km) corridor in the center of Seoul. The overall restoration design covers water level control in the river, design of 22 bridges, and design of sewer system. Ecological benefits achieved by this project include: flood protection, increased overall biodiversity, reduced urban heat island effect, reduced smallparticle air pollution. The restoration of the area of Cheonggyecheon Canal in Seoul’s city center is the first step in a major redevelopment effort of the whole 7-mile canal (11.3 km) and current ambitious architectural redevelopment projects that frame this natural drainage basin to the city.

The river was initially used for commercial purposes, and for this reason, water had become swampy and highly polluted. The operation began with the water flow invertion, in order to decrease pollution. Afterwards, a path along the river has been introduced, together with linking bridges that integrate central urban points such as Veteranis Memorial Plaza and Bridgehouse Museum Plaza. The intervention consisted also in the construction of the river banks to face the frequent floods. The project has been divided in different parts that address different functions: restaurants facing the river, kayak rental and water taxi station, leisure areas and crossing paths, open thatre, floating gardens with didactical activities, crossing path to reach the lake. The project is a unique work, but different parts are highlighted by the use of pavimentation which underline each function.

The project plans to carry out the realization of eight and a half kilometres of canal, from the Cassina de Pom location, where the Naviglio Martesana sinks under via Melchiorre Gioia, up to the Darsena; the canal will go through the entire Via Melchiorre Gioia, via San Marco, the inner belt and the Conca dei Navigli. The Navigli will be reopened following the water flow, which enters Milan coming from the Adda river passing through the already existing Naviglio Martesana. It represents a great opportunity for the re-qualification of the town in the areas which have been transformed recently. The naviglio is an element of continuity between the town’s main municipal functions, connecting interesting historical buildings. Reopening the canals will spur the creation of new pedestrian areas, a network of nonmotorised mobility.

Degrees of Naturscapes Walking along the canal, it was suddenly clear that the area has a story to be told. The flavours , the colors , the sounds change as long as the river flows. From the southern point where the canal enters in the Ong Ang, ‘till the north, you can experience different spaces, each one with its own nature and personality. The project should respect this diversity as looking at the conformation of the territory. Architecture is made by relationships between space and human. Sections show how the street is linked to the life along the canal, how houses are facing in different ways the canal and the streets. So we decided to work on this connections with the streets and the canals, starting from a natural shading system of trees ‘till a shading device in traditional way. This represents the possibility to create a new space where people can relax, spend free time chatting or reading, explore the real city of Bangkok and waking

around street markets. People will experience a degree of “naturescape” in the sense that, walking through the green areas they will experience the characteristic of the city: a mixture between environment and nature, till arriving in the main core of the city where nature disappears and the artificial architecture takes place. The shadow system is not only a way to reactivate the canal, but also a way to connect it to the internal urban fabric of the city; this would be possible with the extension of the system inside the famous narrow streets of Bangkok. Reopen the Canale, will be a project done step by step and each one of them will be the possibility to reactivate the city mixing tradition of materials and innovation in technologies. Bangkok is the city of contradictions and mixité, for this reason the project stresses this commingled of controversial landscape.

con[net] The area of the canal is currently in a state of abandonment, in between the two phases of the re-opening project; it’s a leftover space and it appears both empty and chaotic. Our first impression was that it might be a nice pedestrian open air walkway for the messy city of Bangkok, useful for those who are living in the neighbourhood to enjoy a quiet moment far from cars and motorbikes, like a promenade along the water. The site is crossed by three vehicular streets, two of which very busy, that allows all the kind of vehicle to access the walking area and cross the crowded street market that also crosses the canal. In the past it all used to be a market: the water was covered and fully occupied by a big important market which characterized the community nearby; without this covering structure that has been removed due to the “Bangkok 250” project, the area is also missing an horizontal connection between the two banks and a defining identity. Our project is aiming to solve the problems

created by the lack of care, introducing some simple structure suggesting a better use of the space: bridges and traffic deterrents for the continuity of the pedestrian path; and squares, multifunctional structures, greenery and benches to re-give a sense of community and to improve the quality of the air and the water. To keep the memory of the place as it was before, we introduced a net reproducing the frame of the market tents as they used to be, an open grid leading all along the canal providing shade to the new squares and gardens. We wanted to maintain this space as something for the community living there, without imposing an alien construction to a consolidated culture: to do so we used traditional wooden stilts structures as in other Bangkok canals. In this long term regeneration process we wanted the local community to take back the relationship with the water and the area in a new way, without forgetting about the tradition and the past.

the city of bridges The project is developed moving from the analysis of the area, in which many problems and potientalities have been indentified and highlighted. As a result of the site visit, it appeared evident how the river acts as a barrier that fragments the area in two spaces, creating discontinuity and fragmentation between the two sides. The area is characterized by the presence of a great number of shops and activities located along the river, which involve both a massive presence of people who live and interuct along the area and a situation of general congestion and pollution, caused by the overflow of waste and polluted materials along the streets and in the canal itself. It appears also evident a general condition of abandonment and underused spaces and buildings such as, in the last part of the area, where the canal ends, a sequence of abandoned shops that could be considered as an opportunity to rethink the area if appropriately requalified and revitalized.

The traffic congestioni is also a great problem for the area, especially on the bridges, where pedestrians and cars meet generating a situation of chaos and noise. The intention of the project is to give an answer to all the question emerged during the analysis. The most important element of our project is the creation of three secondary bridges, used not only as crossing points but also as open spaces of leisure in which people can relax and spend time together. Two elements that characterize the project are the steps and the ramps that, from the street gradually slide down arriving at the water level. Another strategy constist on the demolishment of an abandoned building in order to use this space for the direct connection beetween the canal and the maib sourrounding road. In order to improve the livabilty of the place, we project to move some activities located on the streets in pavillions that are exposed directly on the canal water.

oasis bangkok The emphasis of the project is done on connections, our aim is to link major nodes of the area with 3 public green zones through green corridor built along Bang Luong canal: Chaloem Phrakiat Forest Park from the right bank of the river Chao Phraya, Public park as the starting point of the Bang Luong canal and Rommaninat Park with important cultural heritage in the heart of project site. We started to design by identifying the potential nodes of the area: parks, cultural and historical buildings, such as old Buddhist temple, Chartree firearm ltd., Indian and Chinese markets, that may work as attraction for green recreational spaces, and for now are not well connected. In order to realize good connection, the following design considerations were made: 1) Residential blocks besides the temple were replaced with the green and open spaces and from the opposite side of the canal close to

Chartree firearm ltd. building, the group of buildings was demolished to make the open spaces wider. 2) Along the waterline, amphitheatre staircase was introduced in order to promote a good access to canal for people visiting the temple or government building. Different water levels were considered in design: seasonal and the daily water level swing – sinking staircase is used for people to access the waterline during every water level, additionally, staircase is also used to accommodate large amount of people who wish to perform the religious acts during festivals such as Loi Krathong when the area is crowded with tourists. 3) Constructed wetlands were designed to provide the green access for people walking on the ground level of the canal without disturbing the pedestrian pathways; additional function is the water animal sanctuary – the favourable place for aquatic living.

Reflections on Ong Ang The concept of the project is to connect the places of the past with the identities that exist today by ‘reflecting’ on the past to create a stronger and more cohesive identity today. This cohesive and continuous identity is realized through a pedestrian path that flows through the site along the canal. And ad the path moves, it stops at nodes that have been defined as noteworthy for both the past and present context of the site. By connecting the past and present we can turn these nodes into unique and stronger identities for the future. The first example of one of these nodes is realized at the and of the canal, near the old courthouse and temple. This node will have cantilever squares where individuals can rest and enjoy the historical courthouse, spiritual temple, and Chao Phraya River. The second node is near the multicultural district where there was a fortress at the old wall of the city. This node will reflect on the three-tiered fortress by creating three levels of

‘protection’ along the canal; defending from sun, heat, and traffic. The third node is in the commercial area where there is a reflection on the recently demolished electronic market and its patchwork roof structure. The proposal remembers this monumental market by placing patchworks of greenery in the canal as places of visual respite, and patchworks of greenery in the pathway for physical respite. The final identity is residential. And while there is not a historical reference in the immediate proximity, there are many to the north of the site where the Ong Ang canal intersects with a larger canal and is seen from the height of the beautiful Wat Saket temple. By creating a continuous pathway through the residential area the further nodes are also referenced and seen as an important aspect of the project and its continuous strategy. These hybrid past-present nodes will help to realize a more cohesive plan for the beautiful, but currently dissected, site.

Joining Levels The analisys that was made in order to create our project was about the connection that need to be recreated with the area and the Bangkok citizens and tourists. Before the markets that covered the canal were an attraction for people, that came from all the city. Nowadays, without the market, no one actually use that part of city and the market is now cluttered in the small streets all around the area. Our aim, after this initial concept, was to create a space that can be use in many levels, connecting the surrounding areas with the canal itself using different kinds of highness. The main floor become a public area, while the space next to the canal goes down and become the real space for the market and the public relationships. The area will be so divided in a space dedicated to the inhabitants and the tourist that don’t want to join the market level and in a route made of stairs and marketplaces. Those will be use in a different way during the day, by proposing a rental

method in two or more schedule. The mornings will be relaxing, with no market and a lot of space to sit down enjoying the breakfast. In lunchtime and in the afternoon the market will properly start, creating the sounds and the scents typical of Bangkok itself. In dinnertime and in the evening some marketplaces will change and the market itself will become a food district, in order to attract tourist and people from all around Bangkok. We planned to change some building that now are abandoned. In those, the ground floor will become a path toward the other streets around the area, while the other two/three floors will become a Bed&Breakfast facility. In order to remedy to the water rising during the rainy seasons we will use the already existing locks situated at the beginning and at the end of the ONG ANG canal that can be opened and closed due to necessity of the locals. In this way the canal itself can change it shapes during the seasons and the time.

Overlap comunities In our project we tried to re-evoke the Thai people’s traditions, of whom that lives in the residential canals of the city, at this purpose we decide to use a wood walkway all along the canal that can merge the new carfree area till the abandoned area at the end of the project site, then we studied a system that expand itself following two axis, the canal parallel one is mainly used to develop private terraces where householder can have their own private space while enjoying the new face of a renewed canal; the orthogonal one, on the other way has been design among the secondary streets of the area in order to give to the pedestrian the possibility of walk along different paths and spread themselves in the pure Thai culture, or at least try the fastest way to overpass the tourists that come in the area. After an accessibility analysis we evaluate, as we can see on the views, that at some point the area should need

more public network and we make hypothesis that include two subways stations, one under the bridge where it’s supposed to be built a highway park between the two roadways of the existing road; our path will starts from this point and go through the renewed park till the canal. The second one is going to be at the end of the project area, on the cross with Charoen Krung Road as an elongation that starts from Hua Lamphong metro station. All the walkways is going to be car-free expect the first part of the canal, on the right shore, there will still be vehicular traffic in order to not interrupt at all some traffic axis in a so overcrowded city. It’s possible to access the path and the canal also from the pier near the bridge. This project Is so called OVER-COM, which means Overlapping Communities, exactly to explain this new way of physical and social interaction between people from different origin.

streaming market In 2015 BMA reopened the Khlong Ong Ang in order to address new public use, but intervention resulted in a drastical change of functions and identity of the area, which now lies in a state of lack of activities and attractions. “STREAMING MARKET”, is a proposal to bring back the function of the area by creating a regulated model tp allow the market typology to spread. The rst action has been to implement the accessibility of the canal, increasing the connection with informal market streets such as “Sampeng” and “Parhurat” , in order to provi- de a well controlled and functional market to allow local activities to spread and boost touri- sm making the most out of the environmental qualities of the site. The intervention strategy has been consists of four main steps: In order to address accessibility issues, the proposal to open the ground floor of chosen units that face the canal aims at creating integration with the network of market streets that

run through the area by connecting them to the waterfront. In order to recreate the market typology, modular volumes face the existing buildings by creating a covered path where commercial activities are to be developed. The disposition of volumes work as the foundation for an elevated path which creates a new layer for fast circulation, providing the area with crossing connection between the river and corrisponding increased accessibility of the whole system. The last step implies the involvement of the exhisng buildings in the project. Reaching the rst oor level with the higher layer of the canal opens the possibility to link the public space to the private one, getting the two spheres to intersect. This solution is meant to trigger revitalizing reaction in the urban fabric, with the goal to turn the warehouses and unexploited spaces of the upper oors into spaces people are willing to dwell again.
