Probably one of the quirkiest buildings on the globe, the Robot Building, well, looks like a giant robot. It was designed by Sumet Jumsai in the mid-1980s and is meant to reflect the computerization of banking. It is an odd building, and Jumsai has explicitly stated that it could be regarded as a reaction against high-tech postmodern buildings common in that time. The antennas and eyes of the robot are not just for the looks, but all have practical functions. At that time no one really saw it, but now the building feels kind of retro. It is closed to the public, but you can best see it from the Skytrain somewhere between Chong Nonsi and Sala Daeng BTS stations.
