Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre by BBG-BBGM Architect, in Bangkok, Thailand

June 14, 2013 Architecture

Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre is designed by BBG-BBGM Architect, located at CentralWorld Plaza, Bangkok, Thailand
The iconic hotel tower soars high above the podium to take its place as a landmark building in the Bangkok skyline. The mass of the podium is a succession of concentric circles layered around the tower shaft. The glass and metal cylinder rises directly from the street to a height of approximately 210 meters. Its architectural expression consists of an arrangement of horizontal banding overlaid onto a strong vertical framework. Dynamism and the play of transparency versus solidity are the hallmarks of the overall design. These elements combine to create a building whose lightness belies its large mass.

The architecture at the top of the tower unfolds into a dramatic outer shell, culminating in two elongated arches inspired by a young lotus flower blooming high above the water. The graceful architectural gesture evokes the harmony born out of disorder and will become an immediate urban landmark.
