One Night in Bangkok.

Bangkok is getting taller. A bit far from the hustle and bustle of DC, plans are underway for the tallest building in Bangkok called Maha Nakhon. Approximately 1,600,000 square feet will comprise of a landscaped outdoor public plaza intended as a new public destination within the city, maha nakhon terraces, luxury retail space, multiple levels for restaurants and cafes. Also included is the Ritz-Carlton residences. This will include 200 highly-customized single-level and duplex homes, each offering the atmosphere of a skybox penthouse. And not to forget a signature boutique
hotel with 150 hotel rooms and a multi-level roof-top sky bar and restaurant, a collaboration between Marriott International and renowned hotelier Ian Schrager.

Deveopled by The Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), Maha Nakhonthis is due to be completed in 2012. Its design is carefully carved to introduce a three dimensional ribbon of architectural “pixels” that encircle the tower’s full height. An elegant glass curtain protects its inhabitants while revealing the inner life of their city. The architecture is articulated to evoke the shifting protrusions of a mountain landscape.
