Keep Up - Modern Thai
Architecture 1967-1987 - August 4, 2008
This is an incredibly odd, but interesting trend to document--the proliferation of modernist, 60's-era concrete structures in Thailand. This elaborate and detailed exhibit shows the history of buildings such as the Indra Hotel, Suan Amporn Pavilion, and the Science Museum. Ironically, one of the most interesting structures--the pavilion over the Samsen train station--was torn down to make way for the Hopewell line which was never built.
"Keeping Up - Modern Thai Architecture 1967-1987" is at the TCDC on the 6th floor of the Emporium (on the movie theater level). Closed Mondays.
