Architect Expo is the largest exhibition in ASEAN that showcases architecture, and construction materials and technology. It was first introduced by the ASA in 1986, making this its 33nd year. More than 350,000 visitors participate each year, with numbers increasing on an annual basis. It is our objective to show the country’s potential in every aspect of architecture, such as construction technology, products for architecture, from interior to landscape. This year, the expo has several exhibitions and activities to offer such as forums, seminars, and services for ASA’s members and members of the public.
The main concept of
the ASA Expo 34th edition is
Architect Expo’22 exhibits architectural design works that center on the concept of ‘coexistence’ as a theme. Inspired by the concept, many modern design works are the results of ‘co-creation’ between professions. Co-creating with landscape architects, artists, lighting designers, fashion designers, photographers, and designers from other fields, offers dimensions to architectural works through fresh and different ideas. In addition, Architect Expo’22 also acts as a platform for understanding the coexistence and co-creation between architects and non-designer creators of other fields, such as doctors, software developers, chefs, agriculturists, astronauts, biologists, monks, etc. The pavilion aims to showcase how co-designing between professions can be done for mutual benefits.

PAVILIONS & ACTIVITIES
Features: Pavilions & Activities
1.1 Co-with COVID
The pavilion showcases crisis-responsive design works during 2019-2021 COVID-19 breakouts in Thailand, highlighting architects’ contribution in arranging safe zones for Thais in time of crisis. The Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage (ASA) educates audiences on space architecture and design, introduces ideas from architect volunteers across the country, and presents public collaborations of the people in order to survive the COVID-19 crisis.
1.2 Local innovation
The pavilion introduces local materials nationwide, and presents them as options for architects who wish to add local intellect into their building structure, decorative materials, and décor. Adopting local materials has double benefits, one is the continuance of the local legacy, and another is the reduction of carbon emission. Architect Expo’22 marks the pavilion’s first year of carbon footprint calculation to raise environmental awareness, as well as create architect tools to creatively address environmental problems at their sources.
1.3 Professional collaboration
The pavilion presents the twelve sub-pavilions within Architect Expo’22, which are the works of the co-creations between twelve pairs of architects and other creators. Showcasing the design concept, cross-profession ways of work, and cross-region communication, the pavilion aims to introduce a future-proof and sustainable New Normal solution, rather than just a crisis-responsive one during the pandemic.
