Bangkok TK Park

Kids & Families Guide

TK Park is a more than a concept, it is the prototype for the modern library. Designed with the 21st Century in mind, it draws inspiration from the likes of Sendai Mediatheque (Japan), Idea Store (England), and the world-famous George Pompidou Centre in Paris.

A truly multimedia space, the 'park' includes a Learning Auditorium, TK Inspiration Box, Virtual Reality, Mini Theatres, two IT Workshops, IT Library and Caf-, TK Music Library, Quiet Room, Children's Room, Reading Park and Mediatheque, Coffee Bar and an Open Square where people can express ideas, experiment and share knowledge. The branding is striking and colourful, with huge iconic 3D desks you can sit 'inside' and other signage in the round.

Citizens of the World in the Making

The idea is to create a channel whereby people can learn on their own accord as well as a platform for disseminating knowledge on contemporary issues. TK Park is a space where the youth can share ideas and aspirations based on real life in the hope of leading them onto the path of self-discovery according to their own dreams and aptitudes. The world needs able and independent minds who can wield energy responsibly.

Constructive Approach to Technology

The productive use of computers is encouraged at IT and Game workshops where participants can both use them as a learning tool and thereafter put their skills to use creatively. A fantastic IT programme includes cartoon drawing and game-making workshops held in Thai. What makes this so unique is that the graphics and music are Thai-inspired.

The take on technology and the media is not one of condemnation, but of making use of the possibilities for life enhancement and worldwide enlightenment. Indeed, there is significant focus on social, cultural and environmental issues of global import. The media's positive role as a tool to educate, reach people, facilitate understanding and connect people who might never have had the opportunity to exchange ideas is well represented.

Introducing the Pleasures of Reading

Seminars are held, skills workshops offered, intelligent films are aired in the mini theatres, inspiring performances fill the Open Square, and in the Reading Park, people of all shapes and sizes in comfy positions are absorbed in the world of books. There are Thai as well as English and Chinese resources. You can research and listen to your favourite music artist in the Music Library, where a collection of DVDs and CDs, PCs and headphones are available.

In addition to all these state-of-the-art facilities, there is a well-stocked library with a good selection of fiction as well as non-fiction, journals and magazines in the Reading Park and Mediatheque. In the Children's Room, little ones are encouraged to take up reading for fun in the honeycomb reading nook they can climb inside and curl up in. If only all the world had access to such wonderful facilities.
