Inspired from Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino, this thesis speculates on an ideal place which evolves from true cultural references. The three Thai traditional celebrations Bun Bang Fai (Rocketfire), Loy Krathong (Floating basket), and Yee Peng (Lantern) festival originate from the spiritual importance given to sky, land, and water in Thai mythology and belief.
Each of the three events is celebrated with the making of Bang Fai (rocket), Krathong (basket), and Khom (lantern). This thesis focuses on the folding techniques of the Krathong making process, which is developed into the architectural fragments of the palace. The existing folding techniques of the basket were further developed through multiple digital tools, allowing intuitive handling of the model as well as complex operations. By using the digital tool, it develops a new architecture which represents Thai culture without repeating conventions of the past.
