Behind the Scenes of the Royal Pyre for Cremation Construction

The ASA CREW team and The Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage are proud to share this compilation of photographs behind the scenes and explanations of the design and construction of the very regal royal pyre for the cremation of the revered late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

In this issue, readers will learn about the work of architects and artists who continue to practice Thai traditional architecture to preserve Thailand’s national architectural identity.

We, of the ASA CREW, have endeavored to produce this architectural journal for both Thai and foreign readers as an act of homage and expression of our deepest condolences and sense of loss on the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
