THE FLOW is a multi-purposed pavilion which is designed for a community in Bangsaen – a coastal city in the east of Thailand. The highlight of the pavilion is the uniquely constructed roof which mirrors the natural sheltering function of tree leaves. The folded wooden floor is designed to support many kinds of urban and physical activities such as skateboarding, picnicking and exercise, etc. Members of the local community can enjoy sitting here, watching the sea and sunset views, as well as holding community meetings or small performances.
