Bringing the wisdom of sustainable systems into urban living

We humans can be brutally slow on the uptake. But so encouraging to see sustainable practices spreading through the world’s urban centers.

Chulalongkorn University has opened an urban agricultural learning center called Siam Green Sky on the top floor of the Siam Square One shopping center. The project covers an area of 2,000 sq.m on the 7th floor and is considered to be the largest rooftop garden in Bangkok. Siam Green Sky is designed and developed from the three main ideas which are learning center, agricultural awareness, and social networking. The learning center idea focuses on the dissemination of innovative agriculture, landscape management, urban ecology, and safe food production process. The agricultural awareness is meant to bring the local way of life of Thai farmers to the city so that urban people can learn and absorb their wisdom. They also put an emphasis on space management, fully-integrated self-sustenance, the creation of green social network, and renewable energy from solar panels.
