从上个世纪初开始,汽车行业就在一直影响建筑(但是不如其它一些行业对建筑的影响)。在近代的历史中,各种汽车的材料、形状、高速、制造方式都激发了建筑业的灵感。我们可以从建筑学的经典例子,如:位于都灵的菲亚特Lingotto工厂(Mattè Trucco 1923年),它的测试赛道就在屋顶上;宝马在莱比锡中央工厂(哈迪德,2005),建筑和汽车的制造流程密不可分。

汽车是建筑最好的朋友。

Autostella位于曼谷周边的Eakamai - ramintra高速公路边上,它是一个小型的进口汽车展厅。Autostella出售的类型主要是一些可爱而有趣的汽车,如菲亚特500或一些来自意大利汽车制造商的小车型,如:阿尔法,罗密欧。Autostella和泰国普通的高玻璃窗的汽车陈列室不同。

该项目没有传统的汽车展览馆刻意去强调汽车的“速度”和“流线型外表”。它就像一个中间停靠了小型车的面包店或咖啡馆,想象一下,汽车是客厅中家具...这里的的潜在客户关注的是一种生活方式(有时,买东西靠激情,而不是逻辑)。汽车就像移动电话一样,是人们生活的一部分。不仅仅是交通工具。

红色的盒子被推,拉,变形,划分为4个不同的(但连接)的房间。每个房间都有不同大小的临街窗户。窗户的大小依据房间的大小。每个房间可以用不同的装饰,以适应未来的新车型。它就像一个汽车的家,而不是展厅。"为什么汽车展厅必须白色的一体化的空间?那太无聊了"。

From early period of the last century, automotive industry have always influenced architecture (but not so much the other way around). In modern history, different aspects of “automobile” has been inspiring architecture, whether as a material, shape, speed of the way cars are manufactured. We learn so much from the classic examples of architecture like Fiat’s Lingotto factory in Turin, (Mattè Trucco1923) in which the testing track is located on the roof top of the building. Or BMW’s Central Factory in Leipzig (Zaha Hadid, 2005) that incorporates the process of car production and architecture into one.

Car is another architecture’s best friend.

Autostella is a small imported car showroom in Bangkok located around Eakamai-Ramintra expressway. The types of cars Autostella keen to sell are those cute and fun to drive like Fiat 500 or some other small models from another Italian car maker, Alfa romeo. Autostella is not an automobile showroom with super high glass windows as commonly seen in Thailand.

We accessed the project by neglecting the stereotype aspects of automobile that people connect themselves with, which is “speed” and its “Dynamic” look. But it is designed like a small bakery and cafe’ that has small cars park right in the middle of the shops. Imagine a car is one of the furniture in the living room…Their potential clients are those lifestyle concerned people (who sometimes emotional buy rather than logical buy things.) Cars become part of people’s lifestyle, like mobile phone. They are not only transportations like when they were invented anymore.

The flat and long red box is pushed-pulled, deformed and divided in to 4 different (but connected) rooms. Each room has windows in different sizes facing the street. Each of the window is different size according to the size of the room. The room can be decorated differently in the future to suit the mood of the new models of the cars coming-in in the future. It is like a house for cars rather than a car showroom. "Why car showroom has to be singlewhite room with non-differentiation all the time? It's so boring."
