The Thai House - History and Evolution

By Ruethai Chaichongrak, Somchai Nil-athi, Ornsiri Panin and Saowalak Posayanonda. Photography by Michael Freeman

The construction of wooden houses raised on stilts to escape floods and pests is a phenomenon found in many countries in Southeast Asia. However, over many centuries each country has developed its own unique tradition. Thailand is no exception and indeed each of the country's four main regions have developed their own distinctive style, making the wooden house of Thailand among the most beautiful examples of Southeast Asian architecture. Built to a modular system, such houses could be taken down and rebuilt in new locations in an era when land was still abundant.

Breaking away from the superficiality of the ubiquitous "style book", The Thai House not only traces the history of these versatile buildings but also explains the stages in their construction, the beliefs that underlie the positioning of every architectural element and the complex ceremonies celebrating their construction. Beautiful photographs and authoritative texts celebrate all types of Thai houses.
