The Main Entrance
The gate that allows access to the BaanLaeSuan Fair 2019 is an archway inspired by curved symmetrical stone structures belonging to the ancient past. Only this time the main entrance is made of expanded steel sheets, which are easy to find and used extensively as fabricating material. The mesh-like steel sheets can be folded many times over to create an interesting dimension. Parts of the arched structure are built of brick to communicate historical value and storytelling power.

The Show House
As time passes, we look back and realize things will never be the same again. It raises a question about the essence of our being and what we can do to live a fulfilling life. The first thing that springs to mind is a vision of the home in which we live.
The Show House at this year’s BaanLaeSuan Fair represents a new concept in residential design. Appropriately named “Living Transformed”, the exhibit is about findings ways to thrive in the midst of change. The house depicts a confluence of ideas about turning old stuff into cool new things. It’s a visible form of our being, our interactions and coexistence with the natural environment.
Here, home is redefined as a place where the old and new meet. As things change, people learn to improve what they have or adapt it for use in a new purpose. Through innovative design, they are able to breathe new life into old stuff, making their home beautiful again.
The Public Space, an exhibit by “room” magazine, is located at the heart of the BaanLaeSuan Fair 2019. It’s an open space designed to encourage dialog and welcome everyone in the community. Based on the “Living Transformed” concept, the main idea is about connecting people to people through ongoing social interactions and mixed-use planning.
The “room” showcase consists of a café, bookstore and movie room that blend together beautifully into one public square. It’s a design that conforms with human behavior in modern day society. Members of the public are free to enter, play or use the “cubes” any way they want. The symmetrical three-dimensional objects are scattered throughout the public space.
The Show Garden
The Show Garden is no doubt the BaanLaeSuan Fair’s main attraction. Aptly named “Living Transformed Garden”, the exhibit is the brainchild of Warawut Kaewsuk, a well-known landscape architect who has collaborated with BaanLaeSuan Fair several times in the past.
The show is about living in close touch with the natural environment. The fact is everything changes, even the things you have in your garden. Over time, people come up with creative new ideas to improve or transform them to serve new purposes. It’s something that happens all the time because everything flows and nothing stands still. There are lots of things in the garden that people can fix to give their home a fresh start and make it a great place to live.
Pet Friendly Zone
A new addition to the BaanLaeSuan Fair, the Pet Friendly Zone is designed to be exactly that – a rendezvous for pet lovers. It’s a garden filled with plant species that are safe for your pets, allowing them to play and socialize. A cool and restful place, the pet zone is located near a café and a bookstore, so you can sit down for a cup of coffee and enjoy a good read. Plenty of good books are offered at special prices this time only.
The Plants Contest zone presents five categories of competition; cactuses, succulents, orchids, best plants for colorful foliage, and bonsai. Coming in from all parts of the country, they are reasons that illuminate the relationship between people and the art of gardening. Don’t miss out.
The above are outstanding parts of this year’s BaanLaeSuan Fair. “Living Transformed” is the name of the show. Make yourself available from 18 to 27 October, 2019. See you at Challenger Halls 1-3, Impact Muang Thong Thani.
