It was designed by the thai architect Sumet Jumsai, inspired by his son’s robot toy. The building was completed in 1986 and is an exapnle of modern architecture in Bangkok.
The Robot Building costed ten million dollars and has 20 floors and comprises 23506 square meters. The two antennas located on the roof are used for telecommunications and as lighting rods.
Furthermore, the eyes of the Robot Building are made of a reflective glass and its eyelids of metal shutters, giving it a more “realistic” appearance.
It is worth mentioning that the Robot Building was chosen by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles as one of the fifty most influential buildings of the century.
