thingsmatter is a design studio committed to engaging with architecture as both critical discipline and fine art; as an instrument for cultural enlightenment beyond economic gain.

Early work in Bangkok includes temporary interventions in commercial spaces, which criticize aspects of consumer culture, while celebrating the material extravagance and diverse audiences that only shopping malls can provide. Recent work extends the working method, tactility, and human scale of thingsmatter’s event architecture to more conventional buildings, including private residences that offer public statements on the nature of the built environment.

Savinee Buranasilapin and Tom Dannecker founded thingsmatter in 2001, after studying architecture at Princeton University. In Bangkok, they have taught, lectured, and conducted workshops at Chulalongkorn, Silpakorn, Kasetsart, Rangsit, and Bangkok Universities. Overseas, they've lectured about their work at Princeton, Harvard, and Columbia, and several international conferences.

We look forward to working with you.

RevCloud
 
RevCloud is a series of palimpsests assembled from architectural working drawings, previously used to fabricate components of aTypical Shophouse. Overlaying several pages of information transforms the documents from tools of calculation and communication into textured abstractions. Fragmentary notes and partially legible forms emerge through the dense cloud of lines, hinting at the deeply personal labors of drawing, revising, measuring, and making that are embodied, but not always visible, in finished architecture.
