tiny thai pavilions…

…I loved these, the Thailand Pavilion in the Arsenale presents 100 ideas that can provide people with a common ground. The exhibition, curated by Apiradee Kasemsook, Nuttinee Karnchanarporn and Tonkao Panin, presents 40 boxes identical box structures. Inside, the boxes were designed by different Thai architecture firms, designers, lecturers and students. Each one intends to speak within its own logic.
