Bangkok Rising, a speech at the CTBUH 2015 International Conference in New York

Oct 26, 2015  |  NEW YORK

MahaNakhon, the tallest building in Bangkok approaches completion, and is featured in this year’s CTBUH conference. With the theme “Bangkok Rising”, Ole Scheeren outlines the design philosophy of the tower and presents MahaNakhon as an architectural prototype that generates shared spaces of social interaction and manifests the creation of spaces not only within, but through and around its specific urban context, describing the project’s capacity to direct the dialogue of tall buildings towards a more holistic and comprehensive understanding of its place in the creation of cities and social realities.
