 Known as:        
 Description:   The ONESIAM elevated skywalk connecting to the Pathumwan Intersection was designed with the concept of Universal Design to cater to urban lifestyles for the elderly, the disabled, and the general public. Today, it has become an iconic landmark that enhances the positive image and reinforces the symbol of “Universal Design City” for the good quality of life for all people. It not only meets modern lifestyle needs, but also becomes the model of one of the most perfect skywalks in the capital city of Thailand, in regards to both beauty and function.
The skywalk conveniently connects major attractions around the area, such as the Bangkok Art and Culture Center, the National Stadium, MBK Center, Siam Square, Siam Discovery and access to the mass transit system: Siam and National Stadium BTS stations.  It reinforces the Siam area’s position as the gateway to Bangkok and provides convenient facilities for those roaming within the district through its outstanding Universal Design, enabling it to become a global destination from people from around the world as an art district.
The inspiration for the design is derived from the High Line in New York, which leads to the creation of the skywalk connecting the Pathumwan intersection whose walkways are covered with abstract art.  From above, you can see a plenty of lotus leaves floating on the water surface, reflecting the greenery and abundance of the Pathumwan  Area. The image tells the origins of this area, which was originally Bangkok’s largest lotus pond.
Nowadays, it has become a source of public art spaces, viewpoints, and a new popular location for people to take pictures and share the space with creativity. The area is under the responsibility of Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Company Limited (BTS) to help accommodate the increasing number of commuters due to the continuous growth rate of surrounding locations.  (Source: Khaosodenglish.com)
