Shelter of Nostalgia by Worapong Manupipatpong


Swedish designer Worapong Manupipatpong has created an installation attached to an existing column of the Bangkok Art and Culture Center that resembles, and functions like, a tree house.

Halfway between furniture and architecture, Manupipatpong’s installation is part of the Politics of Me exhibition at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC), Thailand on now until August 2012.

The wooden structure is attached to an existing column like a tree house. Manupipatpong explains, “In a way, the interior space transforms into artificial landscape.”

“The idea is to create a space that reminds the visitor moment from their childhood. I want to bring back the memory when we experienced space with our small bodies but large imagination and borderless freedom. The purpose was to design a structure that can relate to adults and children, somewhere in-between reality and dream. The intimate space is also one of the most important qualities of this tree house-like structure. It could be a perfect place for hanging out with a friend or a good hide out spot during the Cultural Center visit.”
