Culture & Conditions image sets

These are some images I put together a while back for a project looking at Thai culture and current conditions .

This first set is cataloging different ways in which mobility and pragmatism are celebrated in Thai culture. People move around a lot here! It used to be on the waterways, but is increasingly on land...and so you see foodstands on motorbikes and all manner of creative solutions for getting the job done. Spaces change from day to night, or based on the weather.
This next set explores some common elements of Thai traditional house architecture that have already been mentioned here.
Looking at the intersections of water and the built environment.
Thinking about possible materials that are very common in Thailand that could be re-imagined as building materials using existing techniques. Billboard tarps, tires, license plates, etc.
