DREAM PROPERTY (2014-ongoing) is a project that examines the nature of property development and its relationship to the city. In spite of Bangkok’s recent unsettled political situation, which culminated in two military coups in 2006 and 2014, property development in the capital has continued to soar. A staggering 50,100 new condominium units are estimated to have been launched in 2014 while a respectable 35,000 units were launched in 2015 and 2016 (Colliers Forecast, 2014-16). The rapid development has come hand in hand with the expansion of mass transit systems such as the Bangkok Sky Train, helping to support the city’s growth. The effects and results of this expansion is the focus of this exhibition.
