2018 TED Talk Green public space, Climate change and Chulalongkorn Centennial Park design

Kotchakorn Voraakhom — Urban landscape architect (Thailand)

Landscape architect Kotchakorn Voraakhom tackles climate change and urban ecological problems through novel landscape architectural design. She is the founder of Landprocess, a Bangkok-based design firm that builds public green spaces and green infrastructure, aiming both to increase urban resilience and to protect vulnerable communities from the devastating effects of climate change. She’s also the founder and CEO of Porous City Network, a landscape architecture social enterprise working to increase urban resilience in Southeast Asian cities, where flooding and water scarcity are exacerbated by dense urban settings. Voraakhom has designed Chulalongkorn Centennial Park, a major urban ecological park in the heart of Bangkok, as well as productive public green spaces along the floodplain and coastal areas of the city.
