"ABOVE IT ALL"

DESIGN(architecture)

So some dude saw how hard the “ALL SPARK” was killing in the first Transformers and used it as inspiration for this building you see below….he didn’t really say that but wouldn’t be surprised if it influenced him a little. The MahaNakhon as it is called is being designed for completion in 2012 by German arch designer Ole Scheeren. It stands to have 1.6 million square feet of space which will house retail space, Ritz-Carlton Residences, homes, and restaurants on various levels. The building will be the tallest in Thailand with the idea of bringing this country to the forefront in world destinations. The translation of MahaNakhon says it all as it means ” great metropolis”. The hope is that this building will embody what Thailand is about, cultural diversity and economic growth. SIck building plain and simple!
