A Forum about Architecture, Design and Urbanism from the Asia Pacific
Chatpong, or “Chat”, Chuenrudeemol completed his masters of architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design in 2000 and received his bachelor of arts in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley in 1994. Between his two degrees, he worked at Fernau and Hartman Architects in Berkeley for two years. His work experience also includes a position at Boston’s Office dA after graduating from Harvard. In early 2001, Chat moved back to Bangkok in order to practice architecture in his birthplace.
In 2004, Chat formed Bangkok Architectural Research (b/A/R) with partner Varoot Samalapa. The office combined design and research in solving problems of various scales – from interiors, to architecture, to urbanism. In 2012, Chat moved on to form his own studio called Chat Architects, which continues to explore the processes of research-based design at every level. While practicing, he has also taught design studios at various Bangkok universities, including Chulalongkorn University, Rangsit University, and KMUTT.
