Abstract: The project, based in Chatuchak Park, Bangkok, is designed as an experiential urban connector, integrating the quality of the park environment with both utilitarian and leisure pedestrian usage. The site occupies a strategic location between 3 major elements: a busy transport node, Bangkok’s biggest park complex, and the world’s biggest weekend market. It thus has the potential to develop from a chaotic space to a vibrant experiential space, with amenities and programmes to complement and enhance the visitor’s experiences. It also serves an important role of organizing and connecting the 3 major elements. Thus, I propose an architecture that will comprise of 2 major components. Firstly is to address the everyday transit from the Park and Ride Carpark, and also provide visual and physical connection to the Park complex. Secondly but not less importantly, a connection that includes complimentary programmes and facilities for the 200,000 strong crowd that throngs Chatuchak Market every weekend. These 2 components will be united with a transport ‘organiser’ parallel to the Mo Chit BTS to facilitate the different experiences by easing the chaotic peak periods of human and vehicular traffic. PRELUDE will be the gateway of choice to the adventures beyond.
