Abstract: This Doctorate Project studies waterfront cities and proposes a new waterfront development in Chiang Mai, Thailand around an ancient river that is not used to its full potential. The Doctorate Project is divided into two components, one is the research component where precedent case cities are selected for their waterfront locations and the symbolism of water in Thai culture, and two the second component is the design project which is a New Chiang Mai Urban Waterfront Center master plan (The Chiva Warin Center By the Mae Ping River) to revive the urban linkage between a historical site which has been divided from lack of use and accessibility, growing disconnected from each other. The site location is on both sides of the Mae Ping River consisting of marketplace and institutional buildings on one side of the riverbank and an entertainment edge, heritage shop houses and residences on the other side. Objectives of Design Project: - Preserve culture and still show authenticity of heritage in context to time and site. Through analysis identify which areas of the site must be preserved and what is past regeneration so that it can be used as the design redevelopment areas. - Bring recognition to a river which has been part of the site's history. - Achieve this with a walkable and cultural corridor along the Mae Ping's edge. - Allow future floods through the new master plan with elevated boardwalks so that daily activities continues during the flood days.
