The Architecture Symposium, Brisbane explores new thinking and impactful projects responding to the demands of the emerging Asian Century. Engage with speakers from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand.

Hear from Boonserm Premthada, Founder, Bangkok Project Studio.

Boonserm Premthada was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts (Interior Design) with first-class honours in 1988 and Masters of Architecture from Chulalongkorn University in 2002. He established his office, Bangkok Project Studio, in 2003.

Boonserm believes that architecture is the physical creation of an atmosphere that serves to heighten our awareness of our natural surroundings. His work isn’t about designing a building, but rather the manipulation of light, shadow, wind, sound, and smell – creating an “poetics in architecture” that is a living being sense. Beyond the realms of theory and practice, Boonserm’s work also carries a strong socioeconomic and cultural agenda as many of his projects have social programs that aim to improve the lives of the under-privileged. Outside of his role of architect and artist, Boonserm also is an assistant professor of the Faculty of Architecture at Chulalongkorn University.
