Eight Curved Elevated Red Walkways | Bangkok Project Studio

Bangkok-based architecture firm-Bangkok Project Studio- led by Boonserm Premthada, has installed eight bright red loopings, elevated walkways in the hilly mountains of Pattaya on the Gulf of Thailand as a part of a Wonderfruit festival. The structure is composed of eight curved shapes that hover above the ground. Each shape varies in lengths from 12 to 15 meters. It was envisioned as an art piece to help people realise the value of surrounding nature, and in particular, to pay heed to several trivial details that are usually overlooked, like grass. Amazing way to raise awareness about surrounding nature, isn’t it? Read more about his wonderful project below at SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

Importance of the Minor Details

The red colour structure sets against the green ground catch everyone’s attention. It raised from the green grass-like bridge in curved loops.

‘The Walk is an elevated walkway above the grass, conceived with the purpose of helping humans realise the importance of a small plant like grass, and pay attention to trivial details around them that are usually neglected,’ explains Premthada. ‘The project is to wake up the spirit of a place to make people aware of its natural beauty and the meaning of festivities, environmental conservation, culture, and art.’

The architects say that, as with other living things, ‘the walk’ will grow and transform organically every year. ‘a journey into a world of nature represents an escape from everyday life, a sharing of experiences, relaxation, freshness of the air, the warmth of the sun, the immersion in the ambiance and memories,’ says the design team.

Material Palette 

The firm combined various elements to spread it over a total area of 414 square meters. For the project, the architect used thin steel rods as the width of Napier grass (found in the area).
