I read a statement once that “there is something staggeringly pure about a newborn baby’s appetite.” To me this means it’s so imperative yet exacting! From a student’s point of view, aspects of the Baan Mankong programme are the same. Occasionally, people interested in housing and social services have a narrow focus, but CODI addresses that it’s not just housing – it’s about community! The process by which we arrive at design involved programmes as students and practitioners is looking at the history of Bangkok out of which comes the desire to preserve traditions and promote a secure environment. To me, it translates the symbolism of a people highlighted into a different visual form, which is building (of lives, hopes, and neighborhoods).
