Ferry design comp winners to be announced in NYC

Nine student teams from around the world submitted their ideas for the design of a safe, affordable ferry for the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.  They designed a 200-passenger ferry that could become a new addition to the 59-vessel fleet of the Chao Phraya River Express Boat Company, which currently has 38 landings along its 30 km route.

The Chao Phraya River Express Boat company has maximised the value of its landings to passengers by creating intermodal links and adding shopping and recreational opportunities. The ferries are also a tourist attraction as they ply the storied river past magnificent gilded temples.
