The building was named MahaNakhon, which is translated from Thai as "metropolis". Its traditional modernist prism is as if wrapped in ribbons of “pixelization”: in these areas its surface disintegrates, “decomposing” into separate blocks.
At the base of the building, these blocks form terraces, which, according to the project's architect Ole Scheren, “draw in” the life of the streets of Bangkok into the inner space of the tower. This is a non-standard solution for this city: because of the shallow groundwater, it is inconvenient to build underground garages there, so they are usually located in the foundations of high-rise buildings, thus cutting them off from the surrounding space.
In the case of the Mahanakhon Tower, by contrast, the parking lot will be located behind the building, and in front of the terrace with cafes and restaurants will connect it to the nearby metro station.
On the upper tiers of the skyscraper, similar stripes of "pixel" blocks will be used to position the balconies of hotel rooms and apartments.
