Robot Building Still Draws Attention

Among the unusual buildings listed at, you'll find the "Robot Building" in Bangkok. Designed by Sumet Jumsai, a Thai architect, with inspiration from his son's toy robot. The 20-story building was constructed in 1985 and houses the Bank of Asia.

Nice buildings,maybe all should be designed and built to look like robots,in order to inspire robotic thinking societies.

That's funny. So is it a building desguised as a robot or a robot disguised as a building?

While I was in Japan, I noticed the architechure and many buildings had sort of a mechanized look to it. Like one side of a building might have something that looks like a timing chain cover and built sort of like an engine.

I really like that. Why just make a boring saltines shaped building all the time. For goodness sake, if we've got to look at it for years and years, make something nice, interesting and perhaps fun to look at.
