In Grief

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Karan Paibullert, a beloved faculty member (2003-2023) in the Department of Architecture. He dedicated his life to teaching and inspiring countless students, and his contributions to our School will be sorely missed.

From 2003 to 2023, Karan or “Ajarn Big worked tirelessly to help his students succeed and to inspire them to think creatively and outside the box. He was always willing to lend a sympathetic ear to those in need of advice, and his generosity and compassion touched the lives of many.

His initiative initiatives include “AAU Design Built,” in which he successfully implemented the use of bamboo in our hands-on studio, adhering to the learning by doing pedagogy. His outstanding and commendable contributions to numerous social/charitable service initiative projects included helping tsunami victims and cleaning up Sattahip Beach, to name a few.

Karan’s funeral will be held at Wat That Thong (Sala #11) from April 18-23, 2023:

-the bathing rite: Tuesday, April 18 at 16.00 hrs.

——Wednesday, April 19 – Saturday, April 22 at 18.30 hrs.

To honor his memory and mourn his passing, Assumption University and the School of Architecture and Design will host a prayer service in his honor on Friday, April 21, 2023 at 18:30 hrs. We invite all of Karan’s friends and students to attend and send him to heaven with love and respect.

Karan Paibullert will be deeply missed, but his legacy will live on through the countless students whose lives he touched and the contributions he made to the field of architecture.

Rest in peace, Karan Paibullert.
