This year’s edition of the city’s most prominent art and design festival is A LOT bigger than ever. What started humbly as a design event in Charoenkrung a few years back has now expanded into an extravaganza that will take place in nine neighborhoods across Bangkok. Bangkok Design Week (BKKDW) is set for 4 to 12 February, and features more than 500 exhibitions, talks, workshops, and activities.
Following this year’s theme of “Urban-Nice-Zation”, the city’s artists and most creative folks have come up with showcases that ponder how we can create a liveable city that benefits everyone.
Get a glimpse here.

Newly renovated shophouse cluster in Yaowarat provides spaces for contemporary art installations that were inspired by the neighborhood.
