A dynamic platform for new ideas

Therefore, Bangkok Design Week 2024 (BKKDW2024) serves as a dynamic platform for new ideas and new urban experiences throughout the city.
It encourages everyone to participate in creating a “Livable Landscape” in all possible forms, from the small things around us to the relationships we form, the space we inhabit, and the environment we live in.
The city thus becomes one big design festival in three essential dimensions.
Hard Matters: A city that is physically well-designed, effortlessly accessible, and promotes good health.
Heart Matters: A city that is emotionally nurturing, caring for its people, offering a variety of activities, and celebrating authentic culture.
Design Matters: A city that is well-designed, ensuring a good life, thriving public spaces, strong communities, and contributing to the creative economy.
