Description: Siam (currently Thailand) put in charge of the design of its national pavilion two Italian architects Mario Tamagno and Annibale Rigotti. Tamagno and Rigotti moved to Bangkok at the turn of the 20th century and their contributions to the architecture of the city include a throne hall, two palaces, a library, a memorial library for a Danish Protestant, and the building housing the seat of government, Government House. At the beginning of his career, Rigotti became Professor of Industrial drawing at the "Istituto Tecnico G. Sommeiller" (1893-1923), and then at the "Regia Scuola di Architettura di Torino" from 1931-1933. He became famous as a designer and collaborated with the major architects of his age, such as Crescentino Caselli, Carlo Ceppi and Raimondo D'Aronco. With D'Aronco he traveled to Instanbul in order to contribute to the projects for the Ottoman Agriculture-Industrial Exposition.
