An Odd Feature Of Thai Architecture

This is the central atrium of the new immigration building in Bangkok. It is a great example of a peculiar feature of Thai architecture: vast, open, wasted spaces. The photo shows exactly half of this useless, football-field-sized area.

I say "immigration building," that's how I know it. There are actually lots of government offices located here. Next time I'll remember to write down some of the stranger ministry names.
