Suburban Dream, Protein Journal

Posted in Publication, Writing by pitupong on October 2, 2013

Suburban DreamOur super small thought for Protein Journal (UK); Suburban Dream. We wrote: A Super Gym. Hovering over the typical Asian sprawl of gated community, a Super Gym is a new connection from one village to another. It is a place where want-to-be healthy stressful middle classes meet. Everyone is sweating but constantly smiling. The gym is not a last century stacking rooms but cluster of open and close space that frequently reorganizes itself. It has everything from swimming pool, library, biking track to rugby field. It is a city in itself but only made for people to meet while sweating.

RU-YERB, Green strategy for Thailand’s urban trees for ASA Change 2013

Posted in 2013-ASA Change, proposal by pitupong on April 30, 2013


Design Team: Pitupong Chaowakul with Korakot Meesathien and Sujinda Khawkam

Ru-Yerb (inverse in Thai of Love-You) is a conceptual project of ASA Change 2013 aiming to address the contemporary urban problem in Thailand, in our case the electrical lines and pedestrian trees. With our long frustration on the city’s easy attitude on cutting down trees that are taller than electrical lines, we come up with an idea that allow the lines to go through the trees more safely. Ru-Yerb is a double skin insulator in which the inner skin shield group of wires from touching tree leaves while the porous outer skin attached to tree branches allows small animals access for inhabiting. By creating network of safe passages for wires to go through city trees, big city in Thailand will be able to see big trees growing along side with skyscrapers.

TUKCOM I.T.mall  Sriracha

Design Team: Supermachine Studio

Location: Sriracha, Cholburi, Thailand

Commission: Façade Renovation

Height: 24 meter

Façade Area: 1,200 Square meters

TUKCOM I.T. mall has been rising with the rapid evolution of information and technological products from 2000 on. The market has changed dramatically with the recovering economy from 1997 crisis. Asian consumers update their I.T. products in routine fashion. From Laemtong shopping mall built in the early 90’s for diverse product oriented, the building was then converted into a shopping center devoted to communication and technology products (computers, mobile phones, camera, gadget etc.) and renamed to TUKCOM I.T. mall. Since then the new brand has been expanding and new TUKCOM building is built one every 2 year. After 5 years, there are 3 TUKCOMs in Thailand and a few more at plan.

Once TUKCOM, as a brand of mall that gather all technological gadgets, has been established among local consumer at large, they want to facelift their original design of the building to something that reflects the characteristics of the products being sold in the mall. TUKCOM as a brand has already been something that people remember. Now they would like people to recognize its building as well. TUKCOM Sriracha is one of the first 3 buildings we came up with Black & White pixel façade concept (the other 2 are in Cholburi and Udornthani).

The 1,200 square meter façade is undulated and divided into 765 economical triangular pixels. The black, white and mirror finished aluminum composite panels are distributed through outs in random algorithm. Framing by the dark red aluminum panel, the existing advertisement billboard has been expanded along the side façade to the front face marking the main entrance of the building. A lot of existing building skin are still intact but refurbished. TUKCOM Sriracha is the prototype project for the new TUKCOMs that will be built in the near future, not to be exactly the same but to share certain characteristics for better recognition as a brand.
