Kulapat Yantrasast is an architect of Thai origin who came to revolutionize modern architecture with great designs, ideas and innovation. His first contact with the architecture was at the age of 10, when his small house suffered some damage, so his father asked him to redesign it. From that moment he felt great attraction to architecture and design.
Kulapat graduated from Chulalongkorn University with honors and later performed MSc and PhD at the University of Tokyo.
In Tokyo he had the opportunity to meet the great architect Tadao Ando, with whom he has collaborated on some projects.
In 2003 Kulapat came to L.A. where he made an architecture office called “WHY ARCHITECTURE”, which seeks to create sustainable architecture, unique and that fits the characteristics of each location. One of his most amazing projects was the house design he had made in Venice California.
This incredible project used few materials and a single structure system. The project was based on a concrete structure with walls and monolithic slabs, combining glass and vains with some details of marble and wood. The house is oriented toward the beach for the best views and the project was accommodated so that all spaces had excellent views over the pool and the beach. Large windows were also used for better lighting.
This amazing project has the ability to show how anyone with simple lines and few materials can achieve a masterpiece.
The Grand Canyon is a wonderful place located in northern Arizona, and its name is because this natural wonder passed through the Colorado River. It’s amazing how this place was formed, through the continuous and powerful water flow. Through the years the crust has been wearing down creating these impressive walls on the sides of the river. There are records that thousands of years ago volcanic activity existed in the area, which allowed the land to erode; and that is why the tone of the land of this place is red and its stones are porous and the sand has a clay type.
It is considered that this place has the largest geological columns of the world due to its high altitude. The approximate distance of the Grand Canyon is between 9mi and 18mi. It has a maximum depth of 4822ft. Some of the sports you do in the Canyon are rafting, kayak, and boating; also you can perform activities such as fishing, camping and hunting. If you are interested in going to this wonderful place, currently there are several companies offering different trips visiting the Grand Canyon.
From the point of view of an architect, this place can make anyone fall in love, just by looking at the earth tones, rocks, also the vegetation and scenery offered to us at different times of the day. This is a way to inspire us and enjoy the most of this wonderful place!
