Comments Off on Thailand’s tallest building opens with new green spaces for Bangkok

Ole Scheeren designed the tower while working at Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) and completed the project with his own studio Büro Ole Scheeren. Located in the Central Business District in Bangkok , the new tower might not stay the tallest building in Thailand – the Rama IX Super Tower slated for completion in 2019 is expected to be almost twice as high as MahaNakhon. The solid facade of the tower is broken up by a pixelated effect meant to reveal parts of the inner life of the building. The carved volume forms green areas and balconies that offer great views of Bangkok. In addition to various residential and commercial spaces, the tower includes a large public space with public gardens and a transportation hub. + Büro Ole Scheeren Via Archdaily
