Sanitas has transformed Thailand’s cityscape with a green and artistic hand. After studying landscape architecture at Chulalongkorn University, she worked for four years at Colin K. Okashimo & Associates (Singapore), before pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at Chelsea College of Art and Design (London). After graduating, she joined Martha Schwartz & Partners, a landscape architecture company specializing in installation arts. Since 2010, her Sanitas Studios has produced numerous award-winning art installations, landscape projects and sculptural works. Not only do they break the boundaries between architecture and fine art, they also push for sustainability, by encouraging people to question their relationship with and responsibility to the earth. In 2015, Sanitas received “Commended with Merit Award” from Emerging Architecture Awards. In 2016, she received the International Property Award for Autumn, a condominium design project. She is preparing an installation, “Across the Universe and Beyond”, for the first Bankgkok Art Biennale to be held in 2018. Her red, translucent, fort-like installation at the Wat Arun temple seems modern, but is innately spiritual. In line with the Buddhist concept of Traibhumi or Three-worlds, light and space is manipulated to lead viewers through three states of being – permanence, ephemeral, and nothingness.
