One of our 25th anniversary celebration event!!
On February 10, 2023, we welcomed architecture and design students and professors from six universities, including KMITL, RMUTR, Rangsit, Chulalongkorn, Silpakorn and Bangkok University to “Transcending a (mere) Void,” our international design workshop with Astrid Klein. The School of Architecture and Design conducted this activity as part of a two-day event with Klein. It’s a full-day design charette in which participants collaborated with a team and mentors to generate an idea for a specific place. Rev. Bro. Dr. Verayuth Boonpram, Vice President of Student Affairs, presided over the occasion.
Throughout the day, groups of students from various schools brainstormed, designed, and developed a design concept in our studio, which was critiqued by Klein. The final event was the judging and awards ceremony. Everyone had a great time, and the workshop was so successful that we not only created a fantastic design, but we also developed contacts with the other participating architectural schools.
