The Robot Building in Bangkok, Thailand

The Robot Building, located in the Sathorn business district of Bangkok, Thailand was designed in 1985 by Sumet Jumsai. It houses United Overseas Bank’s Bangkok headquarters and one of Thailand’s best-loved architects. A contemporary of Buckminster Fuller he took inspiration from his son’s toy robot.

The Robot Building’s eyes are the dining and meeting rooms of the executive suites, his eyelids are sunshades, his antennae are lightning rods. The eyes were designed also to wink at night along to music called “The Robot Symphony” by Jacques Bekaert.
