Picture a newfangled creative art space, the kind that has somewhat become the epitome of modern art. Now picture a battered, decommissioned aeroplane. Combine the two, and you'll get an art space with an aeroplane smack dab in the middle. As ludicrous as it may sound, one such location does exist and will soon open to the public.
ChangChui -- literally "careless craftsman" -- is a privately-owned creative compound that wants to be just about everything under the sun. Located along Sirindhorn Road in Thon Buri, the complex will include restaurants, art galleries, vintage barbershops, tea houses, a theatre and cinema.
Its founder, Somchai Songwatana, started ChangChui with the idea that Thai culture will only survive if it is diversified.
