The building was originally designed for the Bank of Asia. The Bank was later acquired by a Singaporean bank i.e.; United Overseas Bank in 2005.
Bangkok is the city of many remarkable buildings which not only attract tourists to Bangkok but the locals of Thailand praise them too. One of these coolest buildings is the Elephant Building which looks like n elephant.
The design was based on the idea of the directors who asked Sumet Jumsai to design such building which reflect modernization and computerization of banking. So, while he was working on the idea, he got inspired by his son’s toy robot and decided to design a building which looks like robot.
To reflect the image of a robot, Sumet Jumsai has also added eyes, antennas and receding walls. All these robotics appearances have practical functions too.
The Robot Building has several awards and achievements. It was selected as one of the 50 seminal buildings (The inspirational building). Sumet Jumsai was first Thai to getAthenaeum Museum of Architecture and Designfor his unique and creative design.
