Duang Prateep Foundation, Bangkok, Thailand
Our project group worked with the Duang Prateep Foundation in using community involvement to recommend a design and maintenance plan for a playground in the Klong Toey slum in Bangkok, Thailand. Furthermore, we developed a reproducible design process intended to serve as a model for other low-income communities, empowering them to design their own low-cost playgrounds. To achieve our goals, we evaluated possible locations, identified material resources, developed a playground layout using community involvement, developed a maintenance plan, and documented a reproducible design process in the form of a manual.
