Exploring cities

Chonchanok Sattayatham

Chonchanok portrays the city by looking around and find the meaning that the building represents to the city. Shape in each building reflex that they are individual, brutal and give some feeling that makes people understand more about their look. He pursues a subject that makes sense to be the answer about the city life and urbanism—the existence between new and old that the meaning he is looking for.
