Bank of Asia (Robot Building) information
During the crazy 1980s, when no building project was too outlandish or expensive, architect Sumet Jumsai created his now-famous ‘Robot Building’ for the Bank of Asia. The whimsical facade does indeed look a bit like a robot (or our idea of what a robot should look like, at least). Needless to say, few architectural purists were keen on it at the time, but now it seems quaint and retro – a real character on Bangkok’s often uninspired skyline. The building itself is not open to the public; it is best viewed looking south from the Skytrain between Surasak and Chong Nonsi stations.
