FOUNDER, THOR KAICHON
For highlighting the benefits of bamboo as a construction material
Environmentally friendly, light and strong, bamboo is a useful material—but not everyone knows the best ways to use it. Architect Thanapat Boonsanan has spent years learning from craftsmen how to work with the different types, going on to establish his practice Thor Kaichon, which specialises in bamboo construction. His clients include Cool Downs Resort in Chiang Mai and Bangkok’s Natura Garden Café. Thanapat also shares his knowledge of bamboo construction through lectures and workshops.
