The long history of Thai arts has been assembled at Museum of Contemporary Art which had been established from “the passion of arts” that Mr.Boonchai Bencharongkul has. But the main reason why Mr.Boonchai built this museum was to celebrate and appreciate the great favor of King Rama 9 and to honor “Father of Thai Contemporary Arts” or Professor Silpa Bhirasri.

From a design standpoint, the building portrays the idea that it has been aesthetically carved from a single piece of granite. The most striking feature of the building is the openwork carvings which adorn either side of the facade, resembling enchanting plumes of jasmine cascading down the wall. The gaps between the jasmine plumes let in natural light tracing the patterns of the carved walls on the floor of the atrium, while revealing in full measure the excellence of the workmanship which can give a different feeling in different seasons.
