Text description provided by the architects. Located in the outer skirt of Bangkok, along the fence of Thammasat University Rangsit Campus, U Square is the composition of two counterparts, apartment and retail. In the wedge shape 1.5 Acres land plot, the 7 storey apartment building is placed towards the rear, while 2 storey retail is placed perpendicular towards the main entrance axis to create the visual exposure from the frontal structure to the rear.

The retail, made out of two parallel steel structures are defined by the trajectory of the walkway, inter linking bridge and the orange cylinder toilet. While the apartment’s articulation pursues for elimination of repetition by the continuously folded form. The lift foyer at each floor, are aligned towards the space between two bars of retail.
