Founders & Directors



 Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg are graduates from the Architectural Association in London and founded Space Popular in Bangkok in 2013. The practice has since completed built projects both in Asia and Europe and participated in a wide range of international competitions. In 2011 they joined INDA, Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok where they were both 2nd and 3rd year coordinators respectively from 2013 to 2016 where they were an integrated part of making the program one of the strongest undergraduate programs in South East Asia. They have lead a wide range of research projects and workshops in Europe and Asia and have through their design and research studio Tools for Architecture investigated topics such as masonry structures, space of political debate, renewable materials and virtual architecture. In the fall of 2016 they launched Tools for Architecture at the Architectural Association in London where they are unit masters of Intermediate One where second and third year students explore experience driven design methods.
