Chulalongkorn Centenary Park is designed to face future uncertainties of climate change. The design concept inclines the entire park to create a container for water: the raised green roof directs runoff water through sloped rain gardens, filtered in the constructed wetland, and then to the retention pond. The park’s mid-lawn is a detention area, allowing space for flooding and retention pond overflow. The park treats water from neighboring areas by sending it through the wetland filtration system.
Centenary Park is an open area with activated edges. Contained landscape “rooms”, like an herb garden, meditation walk, and reading area, sit adjacent to filtration ponds to line the main lawn.
Extending the park design into the neighborhood, a major adjacent roadway was reduced from four to two lanes in favor of widened pedestrian walkways and new bike lanes. The walkways connect directly to paths in the park, creating a seamless pedestrian experience. Linear rain gardens, with a multitude of native plants, line the road to absorb water.
