MoU for new House signed

Bangkokpost 16/08/2008


Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for construction of a new parliament complex amid an outcry from students of a major school in the area. Mr Samak said occupants of the 130-rai land plot selected as the location of the parliament complex must vacate in three months, except Yothinburana school.

The school will move out after a new school has been built. Construction is expected to take two years, Mr Samak said.

The eight agencies which signed the MoU yesterday were from parliament, the Office of the Defence Permanent Secretary, the army, the Royal Aide-de-Camp Department, the Office of the Basic Education Commission, the Forest Industry Organisation, and the Treasury Department.

Mr Samak took credit for ending what had seemed a perennial, 16-year search for a suitable site.

''I have to say the deal is successful because of my vision. I want everything I manage to end with success,'' he said before the MoU signing.

He said the Kiakkai land on the Chao Phraya river bank was chosen after the government decided against another plot belonging to the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) due to opposition from the SRT labour union.

The union, which owns a 165-rai land plot in Klong Toey, had asked for 10 billion baht for a 30-year lease, which the government regarded as too much. The land plot is an oil storage farm.

The compound of the Army Transportation Department in Kiakkai was picked instead.

Parts of the land are also occupied by non-military residents and Yothinburana school.

News of the Kiakkai land deal being finalised angered students of the school who led a protest march to parliament yesterday.

More than 500 protesting students said they opposed the selection of the Kiakkai plan. House Speaker Chai Chidchob met the students and said the decision was irreversible.

Prathana Jaiberkbarn, a Mathayom 4 student, said students were attached to the school, which should have told students earlier about the relocation.

''Will this new parliament improve the way our country is managed? The state of our country is determined not by where the parliament is located but who works in it,'' she said.

Manop Noppasirikul, the school director, denied the school was hiding the relocation plan from students.

Yothinburana student president Prachya Manop said most students are military officers' children. Relocation of the school to an area near Wat Soi Thong in Bang Sue district would increase their travel expenses. No public hearing was organised over the relocation.

Khunying Kasama Voravarn na Ayutthaya, secretary-general of the Office of the Basic Education Commission, said the government's offer of one billion baht to pay for land and construction of the new school was reasonable. Students will be invited to take part in designing the school.

The students could not prevent the relocation from going ahead except by petitioning the Central Administrative Court.

Many sites were proposed for a new parliament. They include the Treasury Department's plot in Chachoengsao's Bang Nam Prieo district, Don Muang airport, a 400-rai private plot in Samut Prakan and a tract in Lop Buri near Pasak Chonlasit dam.

Panel selects new parliament model

Bangkokpost Published: 29/11/2009 at 12:00 AM


A new parliament model has been selected with the deciding factor being the quick access it offers lawmakers to the assembly room within 30 seconds.

Deputy Senate Speaker Nikhom Wairachpanich, who chairs the selection committee, said the model designed by Theeraphon Niyom, director of the Arsomsilp Institute of Art, was chosen as the winner from the five entries that were submitted.

The new parliament would cover around 300,000 square metres of construction space on 119 rai of land in Dusit district's Kiakkai area along the Chao Phraya River. It would be built at a cost of about 12 billion baht.

In terms of other architectural features, the winning model is on par with other entries, Mr Nikhom said.

But the deciding factor and the main requirement was that it should allow the MPs from any corner of the parliament to reach the main assembly room within 30 seconds, Mr Nikhom said.

As for the runner-up model, it would have taken about two minutes for the MPs to enter the meeting room, he said.

It is expected to take another eight months for the designer to draw up the details. In August, the panel will call a bid for a construction contract.

"Sappaya-saphasathan", the name which Mr Theeraphon has given to it, means a place where one should do good things.

He explained that the core concept of his work was to bring the Buddhist beliefs in Trai Bhum, which consisted of three worlds - the heaven, earth and hell - to remind Thai people not to indulge in misdeeds.

"The recent political situation has ruined the country's unity and peace. Khao Phra Sumeru could discourage the politicians from doing bad things as the country had already suffered enough from corruption," said the 58-year-old architect.

Parliament Design Competition: Stately Settings

UPDATE : 2 March 2010

Nida Tunsuttiwong



As soon as constitutional democracy took the place of absolute monarchy in the kingdom in 1932, parliament became the place where the nation’s laws are promulgated.



Since the country has developed rapidly, particularly towards the latter half of the 20th century, it has become increasingly clear that the country’s seat of government has outgrown its current home, so the decision was made by members of the House of Representatives to move it to a new location.


Other Design

A plot of land in the Kiakkai neighborhood of northwestern Bangkok was identified as a suitable site for the new parliament building and the New Thai Parliament Design Competition was launched by the Association of Siamese Architects last year in order to find the best possible design.



Members of the public can currently view the work of 130 entrants, including the finalists and winning entry on the 7th floor of the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC), located just a short walk from the National Stadium BTS skytrain station.



Winning Design

Visitors to the exhibition are sure to be impressed by many of the groundbreaking designs and stunning models of the proposed structures accompanying the entries. The exhibition will continue through March 26.



A balanced approach

The largest exhibition space is devoted to the winning entry, which was submitted by a group of architects called Sa-ngop 1051 (‘Peace 1051’), led by Teeraphol Niyom.


Wining Design Meeting Halls

The design – entitled Sapayasatan (‘a place to undertake good [or suitable] things’) – was inspired by the Tri-Bhumi Buddhist Cosmology, which refers to the belief in the existence of three worlds: Heaven, Earth and an ‘Underworld’. The design features a well balanced combination of traditional and contemporary architectural styles.



The new site covers a 109-rai (over 17-hectate) area located alongside the Chao Phraya River. The winning design does not include a fence or wall, which is meant to symbolize that parliament is open to all. However, there is a small moat surrounding the site.



In addition to the Sappayasatan design, there are many other stunning designs and Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) presentations, including those produced by other finalists. You don’t need to be a student of architecture to appreciate these displays, which feature realistic images and models produced by some of the country’s leading talents in this field.




While the concept of the competition is easy enough to understand – ‘creating a meeting place for members of parliament [MPs] and senators’ – the ideas generated by the contestants illustrate a great deal of diversity in the way that they view the country’s democracy.




While some of the designs are based on futuristic themes, many others feature traditional Thai design styles, including religious references. The design submitted by JV Design 103, for example, incorporates the Phan Wan Fah, a golden tray, pedestal and model of the constitution, which is based on an existing feature that is part of the Democracy Monument.
This particular feature is considered to be an important symbol of Thai democracy.



Bangkok Art and Culture Center opens from Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am until 9 pm. Admission is free.

For further information, contact Tel: +66 (0)2 214 6630-8, or visit the official website at http://www.bacc.or.th.



Transport connections:

Train: Take the BTS skytrain to the National Stadium. Disembark from Exit 3 and you will see signs for the BACC.

New parliament in use by 2013

Bangkokpost Published: 4/08/2010 at 04:41 PM


His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn will preside over the foundation stone laying ceremony for the new parliament in Kiak Kai area on Aug 12, House secretary-general Pithoon Poomhiran said on Wednesday.

Mr Pithoon said 4,785 people have been in invited to attend the ceremony, which begins at 8am.

Parliament President Chai Chidchob said the new parliament complex, which will have 11 floors above ground and two floors underground, is a result of continued efforts by the governments of Samak Sundaravej, Somchai Wongsawat and Abhisit Vejjajiva.

He said the parliament's grandeur would be the pride of Thailand, visible to people from all over the world.

Construction of the new parliament is scheduled to be finished in 900 days, or sooner, thanks to modern construction equipment and technology, Mr Chai said.

Mr Chai said the cost is more than 10 billion baht, to be allocated from 2011-2014 budgets.
