T.R.O.P creates resort inspired by the Thailand’s first national park

Botanica Khao Yai-Thailand-TROP-5
Inspired by the nearby mountain range, Khao Yai, Thailand’s largest rain forest (also Thailand’s first national park), the landscape is created as the link between the architecture and Nature. Instead of trying to produce a faked natural forest, the architecture is interpreted as big trees while the landscape represents the green areas underneath. Working with different qualities of sunlight, the landscape solution successfully introduces the man-made sustainable forest, which inspires the residents to understand and appreciate what Nature is all about.
