Project Summary

Catenary Arches in Thailand

Ban Chang Town Hall

The project began with a decision by the local community to invest in constructing a community hub instead of financing their annual festival – durable rather than temporary investment.

The building is a series of catenary arches out of concrete curving in different directions. An open air structure, it is intended to be functionally vague to host varied activities.
