BECAUSE THE VIEWS WERE TOO GOOD (?)
Heard from SL at another tasty Japanese real-estate lunch that two white towers on the Bangkok Noi side of the river have been abandoned because of their view.
Apparently the project was blocked because of the towers' view into the Royal Palace. If true, this is fascinating.
This seems to necessitate a sightline intervention - hmmm - how to block the palace view, while still allowing river views? OR perhaps what is needed is a program that doesn't want eastern light? OR any light at all?
