The Monk Cell Project
Thai architect proposes an architectural concept to create an ideal space for meditation and other daily rituals.
Thai architect Suriya Umpansiriratana developed The Monk Cell Project as an architectural response to the lifestyle of the monk. The circular structure enables them to walk without being interrupted, while also symbolizing the 24-hour meditation and practice cycle. The architect, who is a Buddhist himself, integrates sun shields, strategic roofing, and other elements like mosquito nets and umbrellas to structure a highly practical and effective structure for the monk.
