1. Varied exhibitions on dwellings

Embracing the concept of simplicity in life known as “Baan Baan: Reconsidering Dwelling,” the center of the exhibition hall was dedicated to 16 small exhibitions show casing many different ways of living.

Start with “In Remembrance of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej”. The show comes in two parts: The“Architect of the Land” exposition, and the“Pictures of Our Father,” which presents a collection of images sent in by designers to commemorate the great king.

2. Models showcasing works by leading architectural firms

It’s the show for people who want to build things. Once a year, leading architectural firms put on a public display of works by their designers. It’s nice to drop in and get inspired by many creative projects and designs, ranging from hostels, townhouse renovation ideas, holiday homes, and more. Don’t miss out on these great ideas.
