An Insight into Thai Culture as Reflected in Thai Architecture, Art & Antiques
by Khun Preeda Pongpitakvises

May's formal luncheon will be held at the Grand Millennium Hotel. Come enjoy lunch with fellow members and guests while listening to Khun Preeda shares his unique passion for, and expert knowledge of, Thai architecture, art and antiques. A former long-time employee of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok, Khun Preeda began to follow his dream when he moved four traditional Thai houses from Supanburi and reassembled them in Bangkok. With extensive study in art, history and Feng Shui, he had his houses decorated to reflect them historically, as they have been for generations.

An avid collector of antique blue-and-white porcelain,
Khun Preeda eventually became a producer and manufacturer of the very popular porcelain used in many homes and restaurants today. His presentation will take us on a virtual visit to his beautiful houses where he will describe the link between Thai culture and architecture. He will also discuss the history and production of blue-and-white porcelain. Khun Preeda’s home has been featured in Sawaddi, Living in Thailand, and Home and Garden magazines.
