This is the first blog of a series of four blogs addressing the topic of gentrification and the condition, challenges and opportunities for heritage preservation in Bangkok.
Cities are probably the largest human projects on Earth. As someone running an organization that takes you deeper into the urban layers of Bangkok, I have a strong connection, love and fascination for city. You might be overwhelmed by the energy and mesmerized by the temples but what you experience is humanity's urbanization in full swing. My job is to give you a more complete picture or selected insights into the dynamics of Bangkok's evolution. When I talk about history, I don't only talk about the past. For me, history is the study of change and my goal is to influence change to benefit the greater good.
