Location : Bangkok, Thailand
Date : 2008 Unbuilt
Concept : “…….Shadow owes its birth to light. -John Gay, poet (1685-1732)
For this Oakwood Residence Park Site, the owner provided one simple yet deeply inspiring and elegant directive; he requested ‘a lantern’.  The analogy, symbolism and imagery is well known; its’ literary opportunity has inspired great works of all arts.  And in architecture it evokes two of its’ most fundamental essences: MATERIAL and LIGHT.
The successful capture of these ......qualities have been sought by generations of masters. Although a modest project located on a quiet former klongon a park in Bangkok Thailand, the owner’s simple directive provided a wealth of contemplation, thought and a solution that required deference to history – and to a sensitive environmental context of the trees, the park and the low scale residential neighborhood.
