Construction Budget

Chulalongkorn University is spearheading the development of the Siam Square and Pathumwan area to become Siam Innovation District (SID), a bid to help move the country’s education and industrial sectors into the Thailand 4.0 era. The attempt will also help support and develop new entrepreneurs and Thai startups through the CU Innovation Hub.

The space of Siam Innovation District (SID) within Siam Square One has been conceived as a space for experimentation, learning, making and showcase of innovative creativity.

Innovation happens in the workshops and ‘messy’ laboratories, where experimentation can be developed freely and where the coexistence of multiple activities inspire each other.

At SID all technologies are exposed, including their back side, and all spaces are designed to be rearranged and activated by the users and their participation. Therefore there are minimum fixed partitions: space can be subdivided through translucent high-performance acoustic curtains, that enable seclusion.
