Ole Scheeren completes ‘pixelated’ tower

Buro Ole Scheeren's MahaNakhon tower in Bangkok

Thai skyscraper features glass-floor observation deck that protrudes over building’s edge

Büro Ole Scheeren has completed a 77-storey tower in Bangkok that is Thailand’s tallest building.

The milestone was marked with the opening of MahaNakhon’s top-floor observation deck, which features a 79sq m glass extrusion dubbed the “Sky Tray” that gives vistors a vertigo-inducing view down to street level.

Created for Pace Development, the 314m tall building’s pixelated design is intended to connect to to the surrounding urban fabric, rather than overpower it.
