A Post-Diluvian Future in Bangkok (Tailandia)

Great Building. A Post-Flood Future. In order to Initiate a Post-Flood That perspective designs for water Must we abandon the Metropolis in behalf of the Wetropolis, and Architecture in behalf of Aquatecture. Towards a Post Flood Future Will Propose a prototype community Post-Flood That transforms from Thailand's Principles Traditions of Centuries old flood-conscious aquatecture Into A contemporary, Visually stunning and Sustainable Wetropolis Taking as a case study on stilts above sea community Koh Pan Yii (located in the Andaman Sea in southern Thailand), which successfully provides all the functions typical of an urban community such as schools, public spaces, hospitals, utilities and industry, but studying the design to minimize footprint or tread on water.

 Design is proposed in this regard, adapting the concept of Metropolis by Wetropolis and Architecture for Acuatectura. Thinking of a future post diluvian proposes a prototype community that transforms and modernizes the traditional principles of a Wetropolis acuatectura contemporary Thai, sustainable and visually stunning.

 While MOST of the world Follows the standard from dust to dust, ashes to ashes cycle, something Prefers wetter Bangkok: from water to water. Almost 300 Years After rising from the marshy banks of the Chao Phraya, it will return to Bangkok Appears STI watery origins. A recent UN study estimates That Much of the metropolitan area to be abandoned Will Need by the middle of the century. As a possible response to the problem of the rising is Levels and the rapid sinking of the capital city of Bangkok, S + PBA Will provide STR more recent project A Post Flood Future, a prototype community That Takes STI inspiration from Thailand's Centuries Old Traditions of floodconscious aquatecture and turn it Into a Sustainable and Visually stunning contemporary Wetropolis.

 Howeve, Koh Pan unlikable Yii, We Will Provide a design solution STI That Minimizes foot print on the water, thereby Enabling the Cultivation of mangrove forests continued That Will supply the community with Mitigating carbon dioxide plants, natural effluent With A filtration system, With Some of the only open green space in Bangkok and with moderate local shrimp farming. Erstwhile shrimp Farmers, Who Can No longer sustain life in Their Polluted shrimp plots, are water-Currently selling Their fields to developers Who bury the water in housing racts, or to the government, Who Hopes to restore the mangrove ecosystem Thriving eleven o'clock.

 Each party is THUS Engaged in a win-lose proposition: Will suburbs Government impair mangroves, water submerge Will suburbs, and shrimp Farmers Will Lose Their livelihood. City dwellers, developers, shrimp and the environment Farmers Lose More Than They all gain. This negative economy Occurs Because of loss is still laboring under Bangkok a very antediluvian mindset is considered WHERE flooding crisis and not a constant. Bangkok've Always Been flooded and only the latest apocalyptic predictions Suggest That INCREASED flooding will return with consistency. Once the city is submarine, can we call this phenomenon Even flooding? Implies a passing phase Flooding Rather Than a fixed environment, and yet, at the current juncture, water is much more Than Predictable land.
We will examine the Entirely stilt home supra-marine community of Koh Pan Yii That hovers Above the Andaman Sea in Southern Thailand, successfully sustaining all of the typical functions of an urban community-schools, public spaces, hospitals, utilities, industry. Blessing or Curse? Flooding, According To our community vision, establishing a cathartic Will Ablution, not a cataclysmic obliteration, of Bangkok. Water, water detoxifying, Will wash away the 20th century's misguided substitutions of aircon for context, roads for canals, for outdoors indoors, anesthetic environments for aesthetic environments.

Universiade Sports Center Shenzhen, China

Great building.The design for the Universiade Sports Center in the city of Shenzhen is inspired by the surrounding undulating landscape and generates a formal dialog that references Chinese horticulture and philosophy toward the land. The roof structure projects up to 65 m, and is designed as a steel prismatic shell on a basis of triangular fac- ets. Faceted glass triangles create glowing crowns around a trio of stadiums for the World University Games currently taking place in Shenzhen.

The crystalline shape of the three stadia is additionally emphasized by the illumination of the translucent facades at night. An artificial lake connects the stadium with the circular multifunctional hall in the north and the rectangular swimming hall west thereof. The overall capacity is approx. 18,000 spectators. The swimming complex forms the third module of the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Center. The overall capacity is approx. 3,000 spectators, the seats are arranged on two stands.

GMP Architekten have designed a number of stadiums for international competitions, including the recently published World Aquatics Championships complex in Shanghai – see all our stories about stadiums by GMP Architekten here.The main stadium is planned to be multifunctional, meeting the requirements of international sports occasions and events. 

Total capacity is 60,000, seated in three stands. The total diameter of the roof is 310 m lengthways and 290 m across. The Universiade sports center has to satisfy the functional requirements of both international sports events and the organization of other smaller and larger-scale events and concerts.
The central sports plaza is accessed via a raised promenade from the individual stadia.  The indoor sports complex is designed as a circular multifunctional arena for indoor sports competitions as well as for ice-skating and other events. Two 150 m tall buildings forming the service centre round off the sports complex in the north.

The largest of the three buildings is the main events arena, which seats up to 60,000 spectators in three tiered stands. The second stadium hosts indoor activities including ice skating and the third houses a swimming pool for aquatic events.
