Bangkok University Is Way Cooler Than Your School

Bangkok University Is Way Cooler Than Your School

I went to a traditional-looking university. It was pretty, sure, but, like I said, traditional-looking. Bangkok University is anything but.

Established in 1962, Bangkok University has been heralding itself as the "Creative University" of late.

This isn't just idle talk. Above, you can see the Landmark Complex, created by Bangkok-based Architects 49.

The school has also hired Thai design collective Supermachine Studio to design the Bangkok University Creative Center, the Student Lounge, and the new Student Union.

The results are playful and very cool.

How many universities do you know with "lo-fi pixel walls" and a giant panda whose bunghole you can enter? Not many!

    Honestly, if I were trying to work, I would probably find all the bright colours distracting and ultimately frustrating. I'm very serious business.

    It's a stunning campus. But I cannot help but feel it would be a strain on the eye, particularly those first couple of lime rooms. Regardless, it's much nicer than my campus.

    not quite as awesome but RMIT new Swanston Academic Building in Melbourne is pretty out there.

    Too bad their tertiary education still isn't anywhere up to par with the rest of SE Asia like Singapore or even Malaysia for that matter. Thailand still has a long way to go.

    Not a good place for students who've spent all weekend at a Full Moon party, I'll wager ...
