Peerapong Suntinanond graduated a Bachelor of Architecture degree at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi. His first career after graduation, he practiced his first Architectural profession career in an Australian based Company in Bangkok namely Harper & Associates covering Interior/Architectural design as well as construction documentation.
In 2006, he left the office and went into Buddhist Monkhood for almost half a year whereas, he decided for the next quest to attend the Master of Architecture at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. This is where he leaned the Rapid Prototyping as such as Laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC machines, Computer Coding and Scripting. All of which were the tools to create complex architectural form with more sophisticated theory in “Self-Sufficient Building” major. Willer Muller who was his studio leader, at that time was the design principal of Willy Muller Arquitectos in Barcelona, invited him to join his design studio in 2008. The economic crisis came over to Spain and soon after Peerapong relocated himself to Ljubljana, Slovenia for an Architect position at Sadar Vugar Arkitekti. He was involved in quite a few design competitions and documentation for construction of Sports Park Stozice, the National Sport Stadiums of Slovenia.
In 2010 he decided to come home with the opportunity to join Palmer and Turner Thailand, the firm specializes in High-rise Architecture and Engineering. His work became a lot more interesting in extra large-scale projects which were carried out from start to the end of construction. He started as an Architect working in various medium size residential towers and later was promoted to the Senior Architect overseeing the whole project of a few notable high rises around Bangkok.
In 2016, he started his own Architectural practice and joined AAU as a part time lecturer and later in 2017 became a full-time lecturer of the faculty.
