Bangkok Utopia: Modern Architecture and Buddhist Felicities, 1910–1973

Bangkok Utopia: Modern Architecture and Buddhist Felicities, 1910–1973

Outlines an alternative genealogy of both utopia and modernism in a part of the world that has often been overlooked by researchers of both. Examines representations of utopia that developed in the city—as expressed in built forms as well as architectural drawings, building manuals, novels, poetry, and ecclesiastical murals—from its first general strike of migrant laborers in 1910 to the overthrow of the military dictatorship in 1973. Using Thai- and Chinese-language archival sources, the book demonstrates how the new spaces of the city became arenas for modern subject formation, utopian desires, political hegemony, and social unrest, arguing that the modern city was a space of antinomy—one able not only to sustain heterogeneous temporalities, but also to support conflicting world views within the urban landscape.
