Designed by Norwegian architects Yashar Hanstad and Andreas Gjertsen, the Klong Toey Community Lantern is a football court and public playground in one of the largest and oldest areas of informal dwellings in Bangkok. It also doubles as an important community gathering space to discuss social issues in the area.
The community centre is the result of a year long preparation period that allowed the project team to connect with residents and understand their needs. The space was built in less than three weeks with materials sourced from local merchants.
