The Thailand Pavilion, titled “Common Collage”, presents 100 ideas that can provide people with a common ground. The exhibition, curated by Apiradee Kasemsook, Nuttinee Karnchanarporn and Tonkao Panin, presents 40 boxes of equal size, volume and weight. The boxes were designed by different Thai architecture firms, designers, lecturers and students. Each one intends to speak within its own logic.

According to the curators, the messages and ideas contained in the boxes portray the diversity of Thai public culture, like a collage. “There is no synthesis to offer for these messages. We want to use them to begin the discussion about the positive ground we could share”. (You can review each boxes here)
