Venice, Italy – With the theme Freespace, the Biennale Architettura 2018 will offer the public examples, proposals, elements – built or unbuilt – of works that exemplify the essential qualities of architecture; the modulation, richness and material quality of the surfaces, the orchestration and sequential arrangement of movement, that reveal the beauty and potential intrinsic to architecture.
Thai pavilion with theme Blissfully yours is presenting 10 free space projects in Thailand in variety context and meaning through space setting and media from a collaborative of various disciplinary. Co-create Charoenkrung are presented as temporary of development to expose new possibility of permanent urban development in future.

Co-create Charoenkrung was a seven-day urban experimentation. The intervention’s main component was a landscape project in front of the monumental Grand Postal Building. With its location in a very dense part of the city where green space is needed, the designers turned a barren and unshaded plaza into a green space which encouraged a variety of activities to take place.
It was well received and loved by the public, both from the neighbourhood and elsewhere. Creative workshops, performances and family gatherings were among the activities that happened during the week.
Though it addressed the wishes of the community, the life of the park, sadly, was not extended beyond its seven-day term due to various reasons. The plaza remains a space for new inventions – perhaps something that would engage with the public just like the park did.
