Modern Thai House

Modern Thai House

With rich photography and insightful commentary, this Thai architecture and interior design book showcases some of the finest modern masterpieces in Southeast Asia. A tremendous body of sophisticated and sensitively designed architectural work has been produced in Thailand in the first decade of the 21st century. The 25 houses in The Modern Thai House illustrate the radical new ideas coming from a dynamic younger generation of architects who are producing work comparable with and sometimes even surpassing the very best architecture in the world. Most of these architects were trained in the U.S. or U.K. and reflect not only American and European sensibilities but also affinities with their contemporaries in Asia —including Japan, China, Singapore, and Bali—all hotbeds for innovation in modern design. The houses in this book are readily accessible from Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiangmai. They reflect a wide variety of concerns and solutions, such as: sustainability; responses to climate; strategies for cooling with minimal electricity; openness versus security in a large metropolis such as Bangkok; cultural sensitivity and responsiveness, as evidenced in a "three-generation house," built for a society in which the extended family is still prevalent; and cultural memory, as in the use of elements such as pilings, verandahs, and steeply pitched roofs with large overhangs that echo traditional Thai designs. Nurtured by an increasingly knowledgeable and wealthy clientele, modern architecture in Thailand is emerging with a variety of innovative architectural expressions.

Interior Design Concept

Interior Design Concept combines a comprehensive introduction to design concept, with a reflective examination upon the various ways it can be understood, harnessed, and implemented. Within interior architecture and design, the power of conceptual thinking to fuel creativity, innovation, and collaboration is evident in the use of design concept. Broadly accepted as an essential component in the design process, design concept is a notoriously elusive topic which has, until now, received little critical attention. This book offers a reevaluation of current academic ideas about design methodologies and the nature of inspiration, alongside brand-new data from an international research study to help clarify what creativity really means in the modern world. Topics addressed throughout this text will examine the functions and definitions of design concept, analyze how it may be identified and integrated within the design process, investigate from where ideas for design concepts can emerge and, lastly, consider how ideas about them might be communicated in various ways. This book offers students, educators, and practitioners a concise explanation of what design concept is, why it plays such an integral role in the design process, and how it is utilized by interior architects and designers.

Bangkok Design

Global design is being spiced up by fresh flavours from Bangkok. Today's young Thai designers create contemporary furniture and interior textiles that appeal to the most sophisticated international tastes, but using tropical Asian accents. The Thais' favourite ingredients are natural materials, fine craftsmanship and inspiration from local culture, which they mix using the kind of eclecticism that makes Thai cooking so delicious. This elegant book goes beyond conventional guides on interior design style to focus on the designers themselves, their philosophies, and how they interpret their unique culture in design. Bangkok DESIGNis the first book of its kind, exploring the acclaimed new furnishings from Thailand and the inspiration behind them. This book profiles 36 of the best Thai designers, showing how they translate their own culture and personal experiences into original products. This group explores a wide variety of styles - minimal, expressionist, modernist, neo-traditional, retro and pop - but each designer has an individual signature. The profiles include several studio artists whose work either has decorative characteristics or else comments on design-related issues like cultural identity and sustainability. This inspiring book, beautifully photographed by Robert McLeod and Lucidly written by award-winning author Brian Mertens, will appeal to interior designers, architects and collectors.
