Thailand Creative and Design Center
Thailand's best-loved design center makes a triumphant return on Charoenkrung.
Now spread across 8,700 sq meters and five floors, the design resource center encompasses an exhibition space (currently showing a collection of designers’ work under the theme “Creativity Onwards”), a library dedicated to art-and-design books, and a fourth-floor rooftop garden.
But the biggest development comes with its introduction of the Material and Design Innovation Center, which provides local creatives with a hands-on resource and contact center for Thai-made materials for design disciplines from fashion to architecture.
Best of all, membership stays at just B1,200 per year.
The TCDC's arrival on Charoenkrung caps an incredible rise for Bangkok's oldest road, which in recent years has seen a spate of cool bars and galleries take over old shop-houses.
The renovation of the General Post Office, which dates back to 1940, cost about B340 million.
