The structure encourages different ways of playing.
Klong Toey is currently the largest and oldest area of informal dwellings in Bangkok. More than 140.000 people are estimated to live here. This project was intended as a tool for the community to tackle some of the social challenges in the area.
During a yearlong preparation period, the team got involved with the community through interviews, workshops and public meetings. The final structure embodies several of the features lacking in the area, including a football court, new hoops for basketball, a stage for performances or public meetings, walls for climbing and seating both inside and around the edges of the playground. The simplicity of the construction allows it to be changed and adapted as needs arise.
