After much anticipation, the new headquarters of Thailand Creative And Design Centre (TCDC) opened at the Grand Postal Building (on Charoen Krung Rd). A three-day launch party took place in early May, welcoming visitors to explore the 9,000 sq.m space. The five floor interior includes co-working space, a hands-on workshop area, start-up business advising services, a resource and material centre, an auditorium, exhibition grounds, and more. Constructed to be a creative learning centre, and the country’s driving force in the creative economy, the arrival of the TCDC in the Charoen Krung area will also be a major catalyst in the rejuvenation—some say “gentrification”—of this historic area. The TCDC Bangkok is now open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30am until 9pm.
