Architectural Drawings of Historic Buildings & Places in Thailand is the result of a valuable project that has been conceived to respond to the conservation-oriented approach which the Crown Property Bureau adheres to. According to this approach, both architectural and historical values of the buildings in question must be taken into consideration. The publication presents not only historical evidence and informative background of a number of historical buildings and monuments but also their components from a different perspective, reflecting the concept and indigenous knowledge of the creative process of the past. This publication, therefore, could serve as a source for further research and guidelines on design and future creative works for architects, historians, archeologists and the general public who are interested in architecture.
This book features drawings of historically important buildings of many types, including palaces, throne halls, temples, shophouses, and bridges. These illustrations are of great value in examining Thai architectural history and also present the unique Thai architectural legacy to the world.
