Studio Bangkok

The future of architecture is in Asia, not in Europe. Asian cities are growing at a speed unknown to Europe. Because of this, new urban planning methods, or the lack of them, develop. The growth gives opportunity to innovative architects to manifest themselves. Over the last five years, young Asian architects are among the winners of the prestigious Architectural Review Emerging Architecture prizes. Increasingly interesting buildings with spectacular and innovative typologies are being realized.
Therefore, this year’s Bachelor studio will explore and examine real aspects of Bangkok, in terms of architectural and urban researches. Bangkok can be considered as an open architectural and urban laboratory for exploring new possibilities for generating architectural discourse.
The confrontation between globalization and localization that manifests through real aspects of the city will be focused as a starting point. We will study different modes of space production in Bangkok as well as the way contemporary Thai architects relate and react to it.
