Sense of Local
Boonserm Premthada argues that architecture is the physical creation of an atmosphere, serving to heighten our awareness of our natural surroundings. In this lecture, he discusses a variety of his work, considering the manipulation of light, shadow, wind, sound, and smell, alongside the socio-economic and cultural agenda, with many of his projects including programmes to improve equality.
Architect and artist, Boonserm Premthada is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Architecture at Chulalongkorn University and Founder of Bangkok Project Studio.
Boonserm’s work has won many international awards including, the ar+d Award for Emerging Architecture in 2011. He has also been shortlisted for the Aga Khan Awards for Architecture 2013, the Grand Prize International Brick Architecture 2014, The Plan Awards 2017, the Design for Asia Awards 2017, and the Royal Academy Dorfman Awards 2019.
