I died and went to heaven and my heaven is in Bangkok. It’s amazing. Thailand Creative Design Center Lives on the sixth floor of a regular looking commercial building, but holds two galleries teaching Thai people about their contribution to design and THEN there is a MASSIVE (private) creative inspiration library. Every architecture book you could ever dream of, every photographer and packaging designer represented. Walls of current magazines from all around this planet. All those big glossies you dream of plopping on your coffee table. There is a color library for designers! You have to hold a membership to get in, but with a passport and tourist story they’ll issue you a one day pass. It’s a wonderland. Honestly. I wish I found it before there were two hours left for me in the country. I am all worked up but I am not exaggerating how special this place is. Wow. The concept of a space where inspiration can gurgle up into minds. I know we do it already, but this place is really impressive.
And yes, there’s a section on the art of banking, too.
