Büro Ole Scheeren: MahaNakhon

MahaNakhon is the newest high-rise landmark in Bangkok’s Central Business District, designed by German architect Ole Scheeren. Its pixelated form reaches 314-metres into the city skyline before gently dissolving back into the densely packed urban landscape below. The MahaNakhon project originated in 2009 whilst Scheeren was a partner at OMA. By the time of the groundbreaking ceremony in June 2011, Scheeren had splintered from OMA, inheriting projects including MahaNakhon and Singapore’s The Interlace for his new studio, Büro Ole Scheeren.
