“Design for Flood” Exhibition
20 December 2012 – 27 January 2013 / 10.30 – 21.00
A showcase of 10 winning prototypes from the “Design for Flood” contest.
The “Design for Flood” project was a creative collaboration of designers initiated by TCDC. Using “design thinking” as framework, the project team conducted field survey to determine the problems and real needs of the people, volunteers and SMEs affected by the 2011 flood within Bangkok Metropolitan area and vicinity. The information collected was analysed and developed into 10 design briefs, and a contest was organised to find the best sketch designs and prototype products.
In this exhibition, TCDC presents the 10 winners of each design brief. These creative prototypes demonstrate how design thinking process can help answer the real needs of flood victims, and also provide opportunity for further development to interested manufacturers and entrepreneurs.
The 10 design briefs are:
1. Water monitoring system
2. Public toilet
3. Community water supply
4. Emergency signage system
5. Floating furniture for schools
6. Private vehicle for travelling during flood
7. Sufficient vegetable garden kit
8. Public roadside water level indicator
9. Disease diagnosis kit
10. Water garbage picker
The “Design for Flood” project was initiated by the Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) in partnership with the School of Architecture and Design, King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi, the Faculty of Architecture, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, FiF Design Studio, Cerebrum Design, KLS and REDEK.
