MahaNakhon, Bangkok, Thailand

Construction to begin on MahaNakhon, a 77 storey urban oasis set to become Bangkok’s tallest building.
Designed by German architect Ole Scheeren, partner of OMA, the 1.6 million sq ft project includes luxury retail space with lush gardens and terraces spread over multiple levels for restaurants and cafes, 200 homes and a boutique hotel. The top of the MahaNakhon tower houses a three-floor Sky Bar and restaurant with dramatic double-height spaces and a rooftop outdoor bar with 360° views of the skyline and river, floating 310 meters above the city.

MahaNakhon translated as ‘great metropolis’ dismantles the typical tower and podium typology to render not a tower in isolation but instead a skyscraper that melds with the city by gradually ‘dissolving’ the mass as it moves vertically between ground and sky. Its glittering stacked surfaces, terraces and protrusions will simultaneously create the impression of digital pixilation and echo the irregularity of ancient mountain topography.

The tower’s ‘pixels’ have been designed to maximize unobstructed panoramas for the residences, offering unparalleled views of the city.

The 77-storey skyscraper will be the tallest building in Thailand’s capital and aims to embrace and connect with its surrounding urban fabric rather than overpowering it when completed in 2012.
