Unfolding Bangkok - Living Old Building (Former Residence of Prince Sawasdiprawat)

The "Former Residence of Prince Sawasdiprawat (Sommot Amornbhand)" is located in Soi Samran Rat's tiny alley. The former palace of His Royal Highness Prince Sawasdiprawat; a son of King Rama IV, King Rama V's personal secretary, and the first of the "Swasdikul Na Ayudhya" family; is located in the Prince Sommot Amornbhand Community. While the façade of the residence remains beautiful despite being vacant, the inhabitants in the surrounding area continue their daily lives. Most of them make yellow robes for monks and sell items needed in Buddhist monasteries.

The "Former Residence of Prince Sawasdiprawat (Sommot Amornbhand)" is a hidden historical building due to its remote location. It is thus a good opportunity for Urban Ally and Silpakorn University's Faculty of Architecture to bring this place out into the open for the public to enjoy its beauty, learn about the historical facts, and get to know the surrounding community, which used to be one of Bangkok's largest markets for Buddhist products before the Giant Swing area took the title.
