“I have interpreted the beautiful view by using elements that represent Chao-Phraya River as my foundation. The arch (curve) of the circle caused by the grid infrastructure conveys the forms of water. I’ve used grid shapes in every aspect of this work, creating the complexity of the city, as well as controlled direction, calm and serenity.
The most iconic feature of Bangkok is the temples. I have taken a small part of the murals inside the temples, and built intricate textures, complex and abstract forms creating a contemporary and fresh aerial view of Bangkok as seen from the Horizon Club.
