Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre is designed by BBG-BBGM Architect, located at CentralWorld Plaza, Bangkok, Thailand
The architecture at the top of the tower unfolds into a dramatic outer shell, culminating in two elongated arches inspired by a young lotus flower blooming high above the water. The graceful architectural gesture evokes the harmony born out of disorder and will become an immediate urban landmark.

Public Academy is designed by RMJM Architect, located in Suzhou, China.
Peter Morrison, RMJM's Chief Executive, said: "Over the last year or so, we have restructured our business by pooling the talent of our international experts in the growth areas of education, health, science and transportation. This strategy is clearly paying off and this is a big win for our specialist education team. It's also a very exciting project for us to work on as the Public Academy will uncover China's next generation of entrepreneurs and enhance Suzhou's economic and educational reputation."
The client's brief called for an academy located in the higher education district of Suzhou, within the city's successful industrial park that aims to be a leader in technology and R&D for high-tech industries. The 120,000 sq m campus design is contemporary, whilst also in keeping with the physical environment and social culture of Suzhou, which is celebrated for its meticulously designed walled gardens, canal-ordered townscape and traditional visual and literary arts.
The campus, which is expected to be completed in 2012, will also offer sporting and recreation facilities for the wider community, including public gardens.
As a result of its international expertise in education design – including projects for the leading universities such as Oxford and Cambridge as well as Princeton and Yale in the USA – the UK architects was appointed by the Suzhou Industrial Park Education Development Investment Co. Ltd to design a campus to house advanced teaching facilities for undergraduates, graduates and incubation units to help graduates become entrepreneurs.
