ELEPHANT WORLD

Elephant World


Location: Surin Province,Thailand
Client: Surin Provincial Administrative Organization
Building type: Stadium, Tower, Museum, Shop and Box office
Project Year: 2015

In the project Elephant World (2015) in Thailand’s Surin Province, the architecture attempts to describe unique differences between Thai locals and Thai elephants compared to the relationships between man and elephant found in other cultures. The elephant is considered a part of the human family structure, and as a result, is one of the tamest of all elephants in the world due to their close emotional ties to their human caretakers.

Therefore, Elephant World isn’t viewed as a collection of cages for undomesticated animals, but rather large residence for one of the human family members.
