The Urban Design and Development Center (UddC) emphasis on planning, designing, and, implementing concept for urban and communities’ recovery and development. We operate our development projects through the mechanism of government sectors, private sector, and, communities to enhance well being, economics, and society, sustainably. Recently, UddC has activated 4 forms of work as follow;
- Establishing partner and network. After experience the case studies from Urban Design and Development of many countries we found that the outcome of UddC comes from partners’ cooperation and supports. Which is consists of government or reverent ministry, regional authority (Bangkok Metropolitan Administration), local authorities, private sector, civil institution, and communities.
- Create prototyped healthy urban. UddC has studied many factors of areas and communities in Bangkok, to prioritize the potential areas and communities, where our development projects will be applied. First, we select target area/communityม then coordinate with those partners and stakeholders to launch the operation.
- Play the role of mentor and supporter. After years of working, UddC found that to execute project on developing health economics and society, with community’s participation is the phase 1 of long-term development. The next phase is to distribute the body of knowledge and support, and mentor each community to self-managing for the sustainable development.
- Integrate our work to educational program. On the other hand, UddC aims to design the educational program, which has the prototyped healthy urban as case study and field site. So, students will be able to learn from the real case, and realize the surrounding physical, health, economics, and society in reality. Once, they are graduated, they could apply knowledge and skill to social construction.
