Sathorn Sunset (2018) is a project consisting of photography and video that focuses on Bangkok’s Sathorn district – a major commercial area that includes multiple skyscrapers, high-rise condominiums and office buildings.

The work features sunset scenes taken in and around Sathorn Unique Tower from January 2018. The luxury condominium began being built in 1990 but remains unfinished after the Asian financial crisis in 1997 put a halt on funding and construction.

The tower was designed by architect turned real estate developer Rangsan Torsuwan. The 185m high tower makes use of exuberant Classical architectural elements, particularly Classical Order columns usually found in Greek and Roman architecture, which was in vogue during the economic wave of the early 90s. Rangsan Torsuwan is generally credited as an architect who popularised this particular architectural style of Classical Order columns in Thailand during the 1990s.
