Siam Green Sky is the first and largest green roof of its kind in Thailand. This urban farming and agricultural learning center reclaims wasted concrete roof space for a productive landscape and introduces urban agriculture to the commercial heart of Bangkok.

 

The green roof references Thai agricultural wisdom, using a stepped terrace pattern that evokes traditional rice terraces. The landscape is divided into sections—herb garden, vegetable garden, rice field—radiating out from the site entry point. The project educates visitors about waste and energy recycling through its own design: the farm recycles organic waste from restaurants in the building below to become fertilizer for plants, and solar cells are places at the edges of planting areas. Turning infrastructure into art, Landprocess invited Thai graffiti artists to paint murals around the site.

 

Every component of the design rethinks what is normally a wasted space: a rooftop into a garden, a wall into a canvas. The message of Siam Green Sky resonates through the site: renewal and regeneration.
