Designed in sophisticated “Thai Hi-Tech” style, Queen Sirikit National Convention Center is a majestic convention venue of international standards that incorporates traditional Thai architectural form and decorative details. The yellow and soft-white colors and inward-sloping exterior walls are traditional Thai forms, while the three-tiered glass canopy at the entrance was inspired by a northern Thai temple. In front of the Center is the “Lokuttara”, an iconic sculpture by national artist Chalood Nimsamer that resembles hands joined in a wai, the traditional Thai greeting.
Inside, visitors are always aware of being in Thailand. More than 1,500 magnificent pieces of Thai art decorate the Center’s interior. Many are specially commissioned, from portraits of Their Majesties the King and Queen painted by national artist Sanit Disatapundh to the huge wooden carving depicting the coronation of Indra.
