Architecture is a globally recognized art. Its a symbol of culture and history across cultures around the globe. One of my favorite things about visiting new places is seeing art from that place, architecture being one of my favorites . In the US, architectural design and creativity is often a display of status. Big companies make big, beautiful buildings. On smaller scales, those well enough off to design their own homes, take that liberty. In Thailand, the same is not true. In Thailand it seems that every ounce of architectural effort is put into temples. Buildings that do not honor a person, or a company, but a deity. The number of temples in Thailand is pretty astounding, but every one of them is a work of art.
