Boonserm Premthada. Bangkok Project Studio

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

Boonserm Premthada believes that architecture is the physical creation of an atmosphere that serves to heighten man’s awareness of his natural surroundings. His work isn’t about designing a building, but rather the manipulation of light, shadow, wind, sound, and smell, creating “poetics in architecture” that are a living being sense. 

Boonserm’s work also carries a strong socio-economic and cultural agenda as many of his projects have social programs that aim to improve the lives of the under-privileged. 

The visibility of his work has led to invitations for lectures and exhibitions at several institutions such as Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Indian Institute of Architects, University of Tokyo, University of Hong Kong, National University of Singapore and several other international university. Outside of his role of architect and artist, Boonserm also is an assistant professor of the Department of Interior Architecture at Chulalongkorn University.
