Looking for new places to hang with your gang that don’t involve trudging through the mall? Real-life escape games are trending globally, asking you and your friends to solve a series of brain-challenging puzzles and riddles in order to escape a specific scenario. The rules are usually pretty simple. Channel your inner Sherlock Holmes by using various clues to solve puzzles and find a way out of a locked room in under an hour. Note that every venue changes at least one game every 6-8 months, so if you’ve already tried all the games, you can visit again half a year later.

Pioneering Thai architect Patama Roonrakwit, 47, has made it her life’s work to improve the situation of people living in Bangkok’s slums. In 1997, she founded Community Architects for Shelter and Environment (CASE), an architectural firm working with communities across Thailand to develop impoverished urban settlements. In 2010, the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Ministry of Culture of Thailand, awarded her the Silpathorn Award. We caught up with Patama on her return from this year’s arcVision Prize in Milan, where she received an honorable mention in the Women and Architecture category, to discuss her lifelong obsession with houses, and why you should never call her a community architect.
