The Aesthetics of Power: Architecture, Modernity, and Identity from Siam to Thailand

By Koompong Noobanjong

Studies in Contemporary Thailand No. 19 - Series Editor: Erik Cohen

From the Introduction:

We will be modern but we won't be you.

Is it possible to be modern without being Western? This question challenges the West's exclusive claim on modernity. Although the presence of modernity outside the West is usually the outcome of Western colonization, recent scholarly works on the "other modernities" show that non-Western societies have not necessarily followed the pattern of modernization delineated by Western countries. Even within the West itself, the process of modernization has been varied. Western regimes with dissimilar cultural heritages, political structures, and economic systems have engaged modernity differently.

About the author:

Koompong Noobanjong currently serves as an associate professor of architecture at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology, Ladkrabang, Thailand. He received a Ph.D. in Design and Planning (Architectural History, Theory, and Criticism) from the University of Colorado. Dr. Noobanjong has published a number of scholarly works on the politics of representation in architecture and urban space, as well as on critical studies of the built environment. In addition to his academic career, he is a licensed architect with extensive experience in professional practice.
