In my last visit to Bangkok I was located in the old part of Bangkok not too far away from China Town where the Bangkok Design Week titled “Fusing Forward” was taking place across several locations in the area.

 

Check out the event map and you’ll see it was basically all over Bangkok:

 

I spent a good part of a day exploring the various locations and briefly going through the exhibitions. The chosen locations were also very nice, old buildings that were transformed to lively museums. Some old building were in bad shape and so the number of visitors entering was controlled, but that just added to the appeal.

 

I started with this building…
