  • Reflective Keys of Integrative Research Studies in A Graduate Design
           Management Program, Thailand

    • Authors: Jitiporn Wongwatcharapaiboon, Akapan Thienthaworn, Adi Pramono Budiwan
      Abstract: This research aims to investigate the keys of research learning based on advanced-case studies in the graduate Design, Business and Technology Management (DBTM) program, Thammasat University, Thailand. Specifically, these advanced case studies are previously completed theses selected to represent certain research typologies that reflect the program goals. The program takes a novel approach in motivating students to creatively pursue their own research questions by engaging them with in-depth group discussions, content presentations from academic and practitioner experts, authentic, project-based practices in collaboration with different private and public-sector stakeholders, and the advanced research case studies. The methodology of this paper follows a qualitative research approach that relies on Stufflebeam’s CIPP model consisting of context, input, process and product elements. Along with class activities, the context of programs and learning types are first explored in relation to class and research inputs from 7 advanced case studies (theses) that focus on different components of the DBTM program. Then, the process of using focus groups in the classes to provide the students with exposure to authentic research experiences, culminating in their own research proposal presentations is discussed. Each of the student’s research proposals must include elements of multi-context research and are evaluated by a faculty committee and external experts, based on the study themes of DBTM and learning types. Most students tend to focus more on design and business concepts in their research proposals with less emphasis on the technology and management fields. A reflective key of the case study approach is the learning of a combination of cognitive, meaning and connectivism concepts to improve research understanding. To support this pedagogical approach, class activities are delivered through a combination of short lectures, sharing discussions for meaning learning, and well-rounded literature review for connectivism learning. These key findings contribute directly to the sustainable development of the master’s curriculum in the Design, Business and Technology Management program.

  • The Practical Renovation of a Privately-Owned Wooden House: Case of Khun
           Prasit’s House, Ang Thong Province, Thailand

    • Authors: Teranetr Tienthavorn
      Pages: 15 - 34
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore and explain concepts, processes and resources associated with the practical renovation of a privately-owned wooden house and make recommendations for future best practices in such renovation. The methodology consisted of observation, interviews, and document analysis. The research found that the “practical ecological renovation” of the wooden house emerged from an experienced architect working under time, cost and the availability of material limitations. The concept is not to freeze the architecture, but to transfer cultural significance of the place and to accept certain changes. Accordingly, minimal intervention is desirable in making the house livable. From an ecological approach, natural aspects and traditional knowledge of craftsmanship from previous generations are outlined in this study. A non-linear and improvisational conservation occurred due to the project limitations. Ultimately, five dimensions have been identified in relation to the renovation of privately-owned houses, which are: nature and its essence; the balance between the owner’s requirements and the architect’s values; a network of craftspeople; craftsmanship and appropriate materials and technologies. However, these five emerging results are interrelated and inseparable. From a practical view, the wooden conservation is not only the preservation of physical fabrics, but it relates to other dimensions, including preservation of traditional knowledge and design techniques.

  • A Land Use Approach to Promote Charoenkrung District as a Creative
           Industry Hub - Possibilities under the Bangkok Comprehensive Plan

    • Authors: Benjamin Punson, Jaturong Pokharatsiri
      Pages: 49 - 62
      Abstract: TheBangkokComprehensivePlanDraft(4 Revision,draftedin2019)hasproposedBangkok’sdevelopment and management scheme for the next 20 years. In this 4th revision, “Creative Commercial”, has been established for the first time under the category of C6 (Commercial Land Use type 6). However, the C6 land use is designated only for the Klongsan and Samyan areas. The Charoenkrung area in Bangrak District, officially approved as the first Creative Industry Hub (CIH) in Thailand, was not under the C6 category, but instead remains as C8 (Commercial Land Use type 8). This article aims to compare the differences and benefits of C6 and C8 land use designations through textual analysis of the pertinent urban planning policies and regulations. The textual analysis was then discussed with three creative entrepreneurs who represent the design, crafting, and selling of jewelry and accessories in Charoenkrung, to understand their impressions of land use requirements and the potential that policies and regulations can successfully support establishment of creative entrepreneurships in the area. Through Snowball Sampling, the the textual analysis and recommendations from the three representatives of the jewelry and accessories business were then further reviewed with two eminent experts who were highly experienced in this industry as a creative space developer and vice president of Thai Gems & Jewelry Traders Association. The results of the interviews show that the creative entrepreneurs in Charoenkrung were not convinced of the benefits in the land use regulations for either of the commercial land use types within the Bangkok Comprehensive Plan. The C8 has higher flexibility in terms of conditional usages as compared to C6. The C6 did not stipulate any special benefits that might be lucrative enough to promote creative business development. Thus, the Bangkok Comprehensive Plan should revisit the regulations and revise theC6 designation to have a clearer effect on promotion of the creative economy. Specifically, we propose three recommendations related to land use policy that would promote Charoenkrung as a creative district: 1) The Government should create Investment Promotion Zones for the creative industry. These zones might include tax waiver benefits for creative entrepreneurs and provide planning incentives for renewal of abandoned buildings into incubator spaces associated with new creative businesses; 2) Events and exhibitions at a national scale should be organized in Charoenkrung, utilizing soft infrastructure to promote city branding and marketing strategies; and 3) In connecting with the Thai word for love, (rak), “Love Marketing” should be used as a promotional opportunity for the Bangrak District to attract tourists and investors into Charoenkrung.
