BU Landmark Complex by Architects 49
Brilliant project for The Bangkok University Landmark Complex in Thailand.
Architects 49 created a design inspired by the symbol of the university, a diamond.
“A group of buildings as a ‘Landmark’ is a fundamental concept of the project. The created architectural form is evocative of the presence of the university, its symbol and also allows students and visitors approach the campus easily. The concept of a learning space, in which students search for refining themselves through learning process – in order to obtain knowledge and become qualified human resources – can be illustrated by analogy with a lapidary process. In common with a learning process, a lapidarian gradually transforms a stone into the precious diamond through cutting and polishing elaboration. Thus, the concept coincides precisely with the university’s vision that aims to be ‘Creative University’.”Architecture Posted on November 15, 2011
