TCDC (Thailand Creative & Design Center) was founded in June 2004, as one of five divisions under the aegis of the Office of Knowledge Management and Development (OKMD) within the Office of the Prime Minister. TCDC was established to serve as the country’s premier learning resource center for design and creativity, providing comprehensive knowledge of design-related matters.
TCDC: Center for Lifelong Learning
A “playground for creativity,” TCDC aspires to trigger creative thinking in Thai society and encourage Thai people to recognise the value of design. From exhibitions, lectures and workshops, to research facilities, TCDC offers activities and experiences that entertain as they educate and that foster imaginative thinking based on well-rounded knowledge.

The 800-square-meter exhibition area, designed to international museum standards, houses both a permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions.
The 300-square-meter gallery is home to “What Is Design?”, an exploration of how ten countries renowned for their innovative design have each interpreted their cultural uniqueness into 20th century industrial design classics and presents the “genius loci” of industrial design in Thailand.
The 500-square-meter gallery presents TCDC-sponsored and other international exhibitions. The goal is to foster design knowledge and inspire visitors by showcasing internationally acclaimed works of design, with detailed descriptions of their concept and origin.
