Supermachine for Bangkok University Creative Center
Supermachine Studio in Bangkok, Thailand, is a group of four multitasking architects that team member Pitupong “ Jack” Chaowakul describes as “small office – big projects.” “We work like guerrilla designers, everyone does everything, constantly shifting,”
Their work in the Bangkok University Creative Center (BUCC) – about 600 square meters in total – includes a workshop, library, exhibition space, viewing room and office.
One of Supermachine’s solutions was the “Lo-Fi pixel wall” at the entrance. They covered a 180 square-meter wall surface with 10,000 custom-made rotating four-sided plastic pieces. Each piece has a pink, blue, green and yellow side. Students can rotate each unite and create color patterns, write messages or just experiment with the tactile wall.
In the student workshop, Supermachine enclosed the internet center in a space-ship like green pod that students can move around in the open space.
