Kulapat Yantrasast

Regarded as a new generation architect, Yantrasast’s interdisciplinary approach to architecture and design is largely shaped and inspired by his passion for food and society, viewing each project as a mix of ingredients that yields its own unique recipe. His numerous projects include the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences (Los Angeles), Contemporary Art Center (Bangkok, Thailand), Speed Art Museum (Louisville, KY), Albright-Knox Art Gallery Expansion (Buffalo, NY) and the upcoming Tchaikovsky Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre (Perm, Russia).
