#Research Project

The Making of Transient Urban Spaces in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (BMR)


Funded by: ASEAN-European Academic University Network (ASEA-UNINET)

Principal Investigator: Tabea Bork-Hüffer
Co-Investigator: Simon A. Peth

Project Period: 2020 – 2022


This project is a research project on urban development in Bangkok, Thailand. The aim is to  investigate urbanisation processes in their structural and socio-spatial dimensions. Besides the importance of approaches of urban planning and management, which are often top-down driven we explicitly investigate the city making from below by everyday actions and from in-between, i.e. from private and public civil society actors. Previous studies usually focus on either top-down processes or city making from below, but rarely their interactions and intermediaries are examined. This project is an initiation project that aims to establish a research network and research cooperation on transient urban spaces in Bangkok and beyond.
