Description Change this


“Memory is not an instrument for surveying the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, just as the earth is the medium in which dead cities lie buried. He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging.” -Walter Benjamin

The Thang Nguan Vintage House is a a place where time freezes: from its decadent walls and faded colors to its neighboring communities, you suddenly find yourselves in another era. Perhaps not far away, but certainly within layers of objects, still imprinted with collective personal memories.
Our project does nothing more than emphasizing and creating a path between these fragments that were once used and nowadays are still intact - preserving their peculiar value through the matter. The space has been designed as an architectural still life, where through delicate surfaces and heterogeneous openings you are able to be face to face with these objects. This curated space is a point of departure to be part of someone's recollection of playing - eating - travelling. For the first time, you are allowed to enter this private space, in which you become the main actor, taking with you belongings and pieces of uncle Poonsak's story.

As architects, we not only assembled personal relics, images, photographs, and other documents but we became archivists who shaped multiple views on this intimate past.
