Thailand’s Tallest Building, Designed by Büro Ole Scheeren, Opens with Light Show

Thailand’s new tallest building, MahaNakhon, has opened to the public with a spectacular light show highlighting the pixelated-design of the 314 meter tall building. Designed by Büro Ole Scheeren, the 77-story mixed-use skyscraper contains space for a hotel, retail, bars, restaurants and an observation deck, as well as 200 condominium units managed by Ritz-Carlton Residences with unparalleled views out onto the Bangkok skyline and beyond. The building’s distinct appearance is created through carving a pixelated spiral up the building, creating “an architecture that encloses and protects its inhabitants while revealing the inner life of their city.”

Now Thailand’s tallest tower, MahaNakhon’s reign may not last long, as a much taller structure, the 615 meter tall Super Tower, is planned to feature on Bangkok’s skyline in 2019.
