Social grazing

Social grazing is experiencing sequences of events in a revolution at any given full day. ’Grazing’ is a redefined term to underline the act of consuming in small portions on senses of vision and taste in Brunei’s culture through performances, handicraft workshops and culinary.

Previously, the site was a water village suburb called Limbongan now substituted by a vacant reclaimed land used as a parking lot, connecting the two river banks.

Restoring the living traits of former villagers onto this site could amalgamate the Malays’ traditional way of life to the more exclusive present lifestyle of Brunei’s modern community.

The multi-faceted interchange and cultural centre is a fruitful escape from repetitive daily routines, to bridge both land and water dwellers into one domain accessed via vehicles and water taxis.

By reactivating Brunei’s under-utilised CBD and water village communities, the excursion of social grazing will eliminate the existing social hierarchy pressures and exhibit Brunei’s culinary and art culture to the world
