Bangkok riverside welcomes an epic library and museum.
The former money-printing facility of the Bank of Thailand has been reinvented as the Learning Center, constituting a roomy library, a co-working space and a museum.
Renovating the old high-security building that overlooks the Chao Phraya River and the Rama VIII Bridge took four years, an undertaking aided by Creative Crews, the designers of TCDC Khon Kaen.
The new public space is home to a highly-digitized, economics and finance-heavy library, and has meeting rooms for rent. You also won’t find the pedestrian pours of Starbucks or Amazon Coffee here—the resident coffee shop is Pacamara.
Entry is free, though they’ll eventually introduce membership packages. Kasidit Srivilai
