Ordinarily, the stage for showcasing who’s who, the unveiling of a new creation, or of a major innovation that can determine future opportunities, most of the time, these stages are set up in world-class expos like the Venice Biennale, the Milan Expo, Maison & Objet, or even at Duct Design Week. They’ve been around for decades, and they’re “world renown”. So, it isn’t a wonder if architecture firms, individual designers, or if real-estate developers are all keen on giving all of their attention to going to these conventions.
Though, the internationally established expos seems to have all the thunder, including all the access to the target audiences, Thailand’s own home grown architecture expo is bringing the heat this year. With years of accumulating recognition for quality, and competitive representation of cutting edge technologies in construction material, international designers and architects have all been turning their heads with intrigue. And, with this year’s “Beyond Ordinary” concept, Thailand’s Architect Expo has exponentially turn up its attractiveness.
For the year 2018, ‘Architect Expo 2018’ will be a collaboration between the Association of Siamese Architects under His majesty the King’s royal patronage and TTF international Co., Ltd., which will be the 32nd time this event has been held. There will be academic & professional activities concerning design, as well as lectures by world class speakers. The event will be held during 1-6 May, 2018, from 10.00 – 20.00 at IMPACT Muang Thong Thani.
Supaman Munka, Deputy Managing Director of TTF International Co., Ltd., said that the Architect Expo 2018, the largest exhibition of architectural and construction technologies in ASEAN, will for the first time ever be presenting ‘The Pavilion’ to showcase construction innovations by exhibitors from IMAG GmbH, a subsidiary of Messe München from Germany. The organizer of BAU, an exhibition of architecture, products, and construction systems, one of the largest exhibitions held in the world. This will be their first time here. This surely is an opportunity for designers throughout the ASEAN region to experience state of the art high-tech construction products from both Europe and the United States without having to fly all the way to Germany.
In addition to the innovative products from Europe, there will also be many displays equally interesting from other countries such as Australia, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, China, America, Vietnam, etc., participating in the 75,000 square meters of space. Making this year’s Architect Expo virtually the event of the year. This event will surely be an important opportunity to catch up on the world trends of design – construction. It is expected that there will be approximately 400,000 people visiting from around the country and abroad.
This is the best chance in all of the years for those interested in attending Architect ’18 to cease an opportunity in being up close and personal along side the most innovative idea creators, both Thai and foreign. Even for visitors with no previous knowledge or interest in this field, this is a great opportunity to acquire understanding and learn, in order to open up the horizon of design work of the global scale, which can be applied to lifestyle, or work. And if you meticulously look at what is displayed in detail, then every piece of work in addition to providing modern academic knowledge, is a combination of creative ideas that has been decisively blended with the spirit of production, commitment, and love in design and its profession. ‘Beyond Ordinary’ is an extraordinary concept indeed.
