Amazing Asian Structures: Elephant Tower, Bangkok, Thailand
While it’s not necessarily the most visually stunning structure on this list, Bangkok’s Elephant Tower makes up for that in its uniqueness. Considering the elephant’s cultural and historical importance within Thailand, Elephant Tower invites viewers and tenants to consider the place that the majestic animal holds in the heart of Thai people.
The actual tower itself is a 332 feet tall high-rise located in a busy Bangkok junction, and is filled with high-tech offices, residential suites and a shopping plaza. Designed by Thai engineer Arun Chaiseri, the building is a complete elephant replica with eyes, tusks and four legs.
