Bangkok--15 May--INDA

INDA Parade 2019 was an exciting showcase of 320 university students in the International Program in Design and Architecture (INDA) at the Faculty of Architecture, Chulalongkorn University. University students from Year 1 to 4 displayed their projects to members of the public to demonstrate their fresh ideas and exceptional skills.

Dr. Preechaya Sittipunt, Director of the International Program in Design and Architecture (INDA) at the Faculty of Architecture, Chulalongkorn University said, "The INDA program was founded in 2008. Previously, we would hold the final presentations as an internal event at the faculty. These presentations are the most important milestones for students as they indicated what they have learnt during the past school year.

The final projects for the students are crucial and we would regret seeing these creative projects shown only inside the university, exhibited only among students and professors.

Thus, INDA Parade was initiated in order to showcase the projects of students from Year 1 to 4 to the general public, for both Thais and foreigners, as well as for high school students seeking a higher education program. The exhibition allows everyone to explore INDA students' projects and get to know the program. Moreover, the event is made possible with the cooperation of everyone at INDA. Here, the students in lower classes will see the works of their seniors while also participating in a project defense with international professors. INDA Parade is truly a representation of the spirit of INDA.

However, INDA is not a program that purely aims for its graduates to become architects; we want our students to be creative and become a designer of new ideas. During the course, our students learn many things in order for them to be able to discover their passion and pursue a path of their interest in the future.

With a well-rounded program that teaches design and creative thinking, our students can further their studies in the fields of their choosing. We do not only nurture architects, as our graduates can take on any role in the creative world. Once we produce the best ingredients which are our students, whatever dish is made will be delicious."

Miss Termrak Chaiyawat, a first-year student at the International Program in Design and Architecture (INDA) at the Faculty of Architecture, Chulalongkorn University revealed that she is passionate about music design and has submitted a project that reached the final round of the "HONDA ASIMO SUPER IDEA CONTEST 6." Termrak chose to continue her studies at INDA and her project was also displayed at INDA Parade 2019.

"I have always been interested in jazz, and I wanted to carry out music design projects that will demonstrate to audiences how music is perceive in my mind. I was inspired at a jazz bar to create the project that depicts music through a water curtain that can change colors with the music notes.

What I did was code a computer program for each note to correspond to different colors that I perceived. Once musicians play their music, listeners will be able to hear the sounds as well as see the colors of each note."

Mr. Pluem Pongpisan, a fourth-year student at the International Program in Design and Architecture (INDA) at the Faculty of Architecture, Chulalongkorn University and actor in the series "Kiss Me Again" talked about his life at INDA. "I heard about the program from a senior at the university. I was already interested in the Faculty of Architecture, and at first I was undecided between enrolling in the Thai or international program.

"When I visited INDA Parade, I immediately chose to study here, as I thought that choosing a specific field that I had to commit to after graduation may not be the right path for me, as I might prefer other fields of study in the future. Also, it was too early for me to decide what would be my specialized field.

The program at INDA did not focus on only the study of architecture that would make us architects after we graduated. Here, students learn about all aspects of design, with an emphasis on creative thinking, practical applications and problem-solving. In the future, if I discover the field that I am truly interested in, I will be able to use the knowledge from INDA. I knew I made the right choice at INDA to study here for four years."

INDA Parade 2019 showcased the final projects of students while demonstrating the essence of INDA: an independent, creative, and beautiful spirit that is reflected in all the students' projects, bringing joy to audiences.
