Isan - Deprivation - Creative With unique characteristics of low precipitation, poor water resources, and soil that is unable to retain sufficient water, Isan people are forced to live with these kinds of limitation. The creativity in Isan, therefore, emerges under these constraints to build its knowledge and culture. The design intension is to create a place where creativity flourishes along Isan ways of living. Scarcity plays an important part in the essential role of limited trees in Isan community. Therefore, site planning is focused in design to let users to have a friendly access and allow activities around every single existing tree on the site. As creativity occurs while interacting and knowledge exchanging are enhanced, Isan people often utilize the ground space under the house as public circulation areas in order to provide shading from the sun. Therefore, this ground space as well as the spaces under the trees represent meeting areas where ideas are exchanged reflecting the Isan people daily life. Furthermore, the programs are designed to maximize interactions between users and the existing trees which also enhances the interactions between users and other people who passes by. With the importance of this interaction and communication, the faade behaves as a communicator. In normal operation, it enhances the activities inside by reflecting the images of the people inside to be visible from the outside. Whenever TCDC would like to communicate with the public, the faade will be adapted to operate as an enormous message board.
