An Asian El Dorado for photographers
I just returned home from visiting my sons and grandchildren in Germany. The first touchdown in Thailand is always Suvarnabhumi Airport.
The result of Helmut Jahn’s vision of Thailand’s biggest airport is a structure with performance materials serve in their total composition and in use more than in their conventional roles. This maximizes daylight use in comfort with substantial energy life-cycle cost savings. The installed cooling system reduced up to 50 percent compared to a conventional system. A translucent membrane with three layers was developed to mediate between the interior and exterior climate, dealing with noise and temperature transmission, while still allowing natural flow of daylight into building.
Helmut Jahn is a Chicago-based German-American architect, known for designs such as the Sony Center in Berlin, Germany, the One Liberty Place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Suvarnabhumi Airport, the international airport in Bangkok, Thailand.

Great device since 3 years. Love it.
There’s no need to upgrade. I just replace the battery every year because it groans with pain in the hot and moisty subtropical environment.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
