Look ok. But the podium is too big. The tower should be taller or more slender.

Grand design for Bangkok completes



Bangkok skyline transformed by architectural hotel and convention center


Designed by BBG-BBGM and Tandem Architects, the Centara Grand tower has now completed to transform the Bangkok skyline. Integrated into a multipurpose podium, in addition to the hotel public floors, this large volume houses parking floors and extensive convention facilities.

The iconic hotel tower soars high above the podium to take its place as a landmark building in the Bangkok skyline. The mass of the podium is a succession of concentric circles layered around the tower shaft. The glass and metal cylinder rises directly from the street to a height of approximately 210 meters. Its architectural expression consists of an arrangement of horizontal banding overlaid onto a strong vertical framework. Dynamism and the play of transparency versus solidity are the hallmarks of the overall design. These elements combine to create a building whose lightness belies its large mass.

The architecture at the top of the tower unfolds into a dramatic outer shell, culminating in two elongated arches inspired by a young lotus flower blooming high above the water. The graceful architectural gesture evokes the harmony born out of disorder and will become an immediate urban landmark.

Is this building ok after the recent protesters' attack? It was reported that the whole departmental store was burnt to ashes. How about the hotel tower?
