The Calm of Bangkok

Urban Gardens

Bangkok, the capital city of the Kingdom of Thailand, is well-known for being one of the most colourful, busy and sleepless city in the world. Known locally as ‘city of angels’, it has a hidden side, which is culturally rich, peaceful, delicate and simply beautiful. The two sides of the city meet in this minimal, modern garden, which represents the spirit and frenetic energy of Bangkok conveyed through tropical planting, and its calm simplicity, which can be found in the shelter and hammock beyond the planting.
