Siam Discovery : new shopping mall in Bangkok, amazing design

After a complete renovation , Siam Discovery re-opens with an amazing design, from a Japanese design studio Nendo and the Thai company Urban Architect.

All the details have been carefully designed to present the products in an artistic way and allow the customer to live a special experience through the 40 000 square meters.

Thousands of foreign and thai brands are represented along with cafes, restaurants and even an art gallery.

Conveniently situated between the stations Siam and National Stadium, this new mall is already packed on week ends, just a few days after the opening.

If you get off at Siam station, you have to walk through Siam Center first and then you’ll reach Siam Discovery. If you get off at National Stadium, you’ll see first MBK on your right, and a few minutes later you’ll see Siam Discovery.

I took these 60 pictures with a Sony A7R2 and the new lens Zeiss FE2470F2.8 G Master
