The word “SPACE” is compared with the sea, because, water surrounded all of your body while you are thinking or imagine, it is kind of like a silently small dark room, no one can hear what you are thinking or feeling. Moreover, activity is what you are doing while you staying in that room, such as imagine, feeling, or struggling. Those activities refer to the stories or memories that you are thinking of, it is of cause will depend on your lifestyle or your experience that make you think like that. Then as in the result, it is what will happen afterward, which is what we cannot predict, some may go in peace but some got help from the other, so as designer space cannot predict that this space will aim to what activity.
You may confuse why I compared drowning with space, the reason is that, underneath water is the place where I can think, memorize, or even imagine of many thing similarly to the recording room that protect sound from outer area. On the other hand, the sea is surely not the place where designer design as a meditation place for sure. Therefore, the word “SPACE” become part of my perception because underwater will effect nothing if my imagination is not part of it. Space can be anything, anyplace, or anywhere. Space itself cannot be called space if there is no activity or man makes it happen. That is why designer, nowadays, may feel guilty when they want this space to be as they expect but it is inverse. There are many factors to support that mistake, which are, location, planning, and personal habit. For example, at Phra Phutta Yodfa Bridge, this bridge is aim for transportation and side walking beside it, however, when government allows merchant to set their shop in market underneath the bridge, activities have changed. This place can be called as Flower Market too, which I think this road would feel like a garden of flower. However, when I have been there by myself, there is a little society in a dark market, because the second hand product and …?….things. Some of those group shift to the top of the bridge to be their voyaging area, or a gathering place, which effect to the transportation. Therefore, the activity that it use to be a historical place has change due to time and culture that change our perception.
To conclude all the presentation, space is everything not just on the land but in the water. Emptiness is like karma that effect in the future. None of the architect can predict the activity in the space, user is the one who control it.
