The Story of the Artesian Rural, Kathun Subdistrict, Phipun District, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. The traditional way of life of the southerners, including farming, hunting, and tapping rubber trees, was drowned and disappeared from a mudslide and log landslide in 1988. Leaving only memories and the ruins and the natural recovery of the area. It has been called Switzerland, Thailand at present. However, one of the things that has remained and become the main way of life today is rubber farming.

In my context, I have a strong connection with the area. My whole family has a rubber farm plantation, and my friends and acquaintances are also direct rubber tree man. They goes tapping a rubber tree and have a small cottage for rest called “Ka Nham“. They use their life as a labour. The farmer owner never think of them. They only think about latex they get and price of money they get. But they never saw the person who do work for us. They value the rubber farmers' daily beats. They’re seen as a worker who only generates money to collect rubber waste. The question is, how is his quality of life? Is his sleeping place okay? Is it the cottage be able to dodge rain or the sunlight? Is their quality of life good enough compared to a worker who has to doing work in the night and eating in late time? They also have to face the problem of low-value rubber that is not enough to live with. They had to find other options to do extra work in order to survive. Today, Pause In, the memorial shelter project wants to create a space. To solve the problems of the quality of life of rubber farmers and to solve the problem of intermittent low prices as one of the ways to deal with the problem of rubber prices at that time.

The concept design is “Among what they have” it means that We will have improve their life by the materials they all have to decrease a cost and to be the modular for any rubber tree man who want to made it by themselves. We want to reuse, reduce, recycle, And the materials that we use is the Para rubber wood from cutting a few tree and replace by KA NHAM or the shelter on it. And using the defected rubber sheet which can’t sell to make an construction and decorative or furniture. We solve the problem of farmer by understanding and use the design to solve the problem of the shelter. And solve the problem when the rubber is low price by making the Para rubber stock storage .All the things we do is to No disturb the nature but what to be a part of nature, Preserve the local lifestyle, Preserve the forest nature and empathy the rubber farmer as a human who deserve to have a good life quality as anyone and want to be the beginning and a prototype idea not for only Thailand but also for other country in Asia.
