AMCHAM to stage Design Evolution workshop in Phuket

Construction News

Two leading home and building designers in Asia will head the Design Evolution workshop being held by the Phuket Chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) at Royal Phuket Marina on March 9.

Phuket has long been hailed as the birthplace of the tropical island villa getaway in Asia. Follow the amazing journey that started at the Amanpuri and Banyan Tree, moving on to Sri Panwa, Andara, Cape Yamu and Malaiwana; and now sees the island dotted with Asia’s finest collection of individually unique ultra villas and estates.

Millionaires, billionaires and high-profile global personalities continue to covet these objects of desire. Why are they choosing Phuket?

In this lively workshop titled Design Evolution, Hong Kong based Adrian McCarroll of Original Vision and Clint Nagata of Bangkok’s Blink Design Group will make visual presentations and discuss their favorite projects.

Follow the pathway of the island’s past, present and future trends in this panel discussion moderated by Lisure Design Group’s Scott Gorsuch.

This is a rare opportunity to debate which architectural styles are most appropriate, functional and aesthetically appealing in our locale. Question whether Phuket has developed its own style and what are the leading examples of this.

An open forum will close out the session with an opportunity to ask these creative talents about their work, or provide an opinion on the design direction in which Phuket should be headed.

Whether you work in the property or resort sectors, or just interested in the creative process of villa and hotel design, the event offers the opportunity to learn more and contribute your ideas.

Registration will start at 4pm and the workshop will be held in the Royal Phuket Marina’s function room from 5 to 6:20pm.

A networking event will follow.

The event is open to the public and cost is 100 baht per person, including drinks.
