Date of Defense 2005-06-08 Availability unrestricted AbstractThis thesis began from my interest in using indigenous architectural and dwelling patterns of fishing villages in coastal Thailand as a model for a new sustainable community.
The provincial government has a policy promoting longstay tourism for affluent retirees from other countries, enabling them to experience the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the area at an economical cost. To fulfill the local government's policy and my intention to design such a facility, this thesis proposes to design an international "ecolodge" for a site near Yisan Village. The area is very peaceful yet it is not so far from downtown Samut Songkhram City.
This thesis offers the design of a sustainable resort community as a guide to be adapted to other applications on the specific site using local vernacular building and dwelling patterns in a new situation.
