We are delighted to announce the launch of the AIT NSTDA Friendship Bridge Architectural Design Competition, a significant step in our journey towards sustainability and our vision of transforming AIT into a fully-fledged botanical garden campus, with a Net Zero target by 2030.

AIT is situated adjacent to the NSTDA Thailand Science Park, Thailand's largest science and technology research park, and in close proximity to Thammasat University. With the current AIT status of a 'Science and Technology Park' by the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI), the Wooden Bridge project symbolizes our commitment to fostering collaboration, innovation, and sustainability by physically connecting our campus to NSTDA. We aim to invite Thailand's top scientists, enterprises, and entrepreneurs to actively participate in our sustainable campus initiatives.

We invite all architects, designers, and creative minds to participate in the AIT NSTDA Friendship Bridge Architectural Design Competition. This competition provides a unique platform for you to showcase your innovative and sustainable bridge designs. We encourage you to consider not only the functional aspects but also the aesthetic and environmental dimensions of the bridge. The flyer is attached for your reference.
