Bangkok’s newest art hub takes over a 19th-century landmark
Nestled in the Old Town, Bangkok 1899 brings together art, design and urbanism in a restored heritage home designed by Italian architect Mario Tamagno and once occupied by “Thailand’s father of modern education,” Chaophraya Thammasakmontri.
The driving force behind it is Creative Migration (East), a recently established Thai foundation related to US non-profit Creative Migration, aiming to use the gorgeous space for art residencies and public events.
In their own words, they will “encourage individuals to pursue the lost art of leisure, engage in spontaneous discussions and open up avenues of creativity.”
