Thai Flood Hacks

While flooding in Thailand continues to affect millions of inhabitants, cause hundreds of deaths, and drive up global rice prices, many are dealing with conditions with some serious makeshift ingenuity. The Tumblr site Thai Flood Hacks has already documented dozens of cases of flood-adapted vehicles and structures. From floating tuk tuks to a bridge made of shopping carts, people-powered infrastructure has allowed life and commerce to endure in the face of disaster.

Our best wishes go out to the people of Southeast Asia, including our friends and (former and hopefully future) t-shirt printers at Biographe and The Blind Project. These stories of street-level ingenuity give us hope for a speedy recovery.
