On a given structural shell a great Department Store and the restyling of the annex skyscraper for offices, a hotel, a restaurant and a multi-storey car park, in a strategic area devoted to the service industry in the Thai capital. The combination between elements that are typical of the local architectural memory and the hyper-actuality of the envisaged functions is translated into an architectural image in which analogical reinterpretations of historical stylemes and new technologies and materials seek a methodological and formal synthesis of contextualised design.
