Foster + Partners has released visuals for The Forestias, a multi-generational residential neighbourhood on the edge of Bangkok, Thailand, which will have a large forest at the centre.
The Forestias has been designed by Foster + Partners’ local studio to address a “growing disconnect between contemporary city life and family traditions” in the country.
Design offers “template” for urban living
Once complete, it will combine housing and shared facilities that accommodate the lifestyles of different generations, enabling extended families to live in close proximity.
These will be interspersed with green spaces shared by the community, which will encourage residents to engage with nature to boost wellbeing.
It is hoped to provide “a template for healthier and happier urban living in Thailand”, according to Foster + Partners.
