Thailand Creative and Design Centre (TCDC)

Society expressed through art

What we say: 3.5 stars

With a diverse rotation of exhibitions, TCDC is known for being both thought-provoking and hands on. The exhibitions often have interactive components and even occasionally feature accompanying kid-friendly activities. Our first visit to TCDC was to see an exhibition on the influence and history of spirits and ghosts in Thai society. With videos, installments and sculptures, walking through the space felt like a trip to a very stylised haunted house.

So this is design, eh?

This exhibition has since closed but TCDC seems to have a constant stream of compelling new work; it is well worth checking their website to see what is on during your time in Bangkok. An equally interesting permanent exhibition uses classic designs from 10 different countries as a lens through which to view societal culture.

TCDC is also home to a members-only design library, but free one-day passes are available if you would like to check out their resources. There’s also a very worthwhile gift shop with a funky selection of eclectic jewellery and tchotckes.
