WHIZDOM 101

Phra Khanong, Bangkok

2018

The architectural inspiration for Wisdom 101 was sparked by a vision of a place for the people, where familiarity brings comfort and novelty raises curiosity. Open piazzas enable one to indulge in interaction, while intimate alleyways and gardens offer places for personal retreat. A composition of meandering campus footpaths leads us to explore, mingle and discover. 


Whizdom 101 was designed to create a sense of belonging where individuals can live, work and play in one’s own backyard, and connect to a community that is free from the tensions of the bustling city that surrounds us.


Small towns, where community is the strongest link among its inhabitants, exemplifies this vision. Every town has primary, secondary and tertiary habitats, namely the home, the workplace and the retreat. The design of Whizdom 101 is based on this model of an interconnected town. The complex informally branches off into different zones such as the residential towers, the office zones, retail, shared working spaces, an auditorium and a suspended bike track. The highlight of this community complex, Whizdom Park, offers a green open space for people to gather and connect. We did not merely design a building complex, but designed a community precinct that is inclusive, exciting and open to all -- a great, good place.
