Bangkok is a city in constant evolution and needs to search out solutions to improve its inter- connectivity. For this reason, elevated expressways skim through the Thai capital in order to bring forth its expansion, offering a radical though efficient solution to its congestion. Yet, in providing an answer, the expressways also undoubtedly alter the urban landscape and break apart the connective fibers between the city and its people.
This research was driven by the need to understand the morphological phenomena of these specific urban situations which can be read as a multitude of accidents that slit the urban fabric. In this case resultant waste lands under the massive concrete expressways are often left in a rough state in the heart of the city.
Convinced that these types of in-between spaces have a huge potential in terms of appropriation and reconnection of the divided neighborhoods a strategy is put foreward to convert the negative impact of these left-over spaces into positive icons for a new Bangkok identity.
