“GOLDEN TRIANGLE” 20th Museum

Studio workshop with “Kyoto Institute of Technology” (Japan)

The Golden Triangle It is an area of around 367,000 square miles (950,000- km2) that overlaps the mountains of four countries of Southeast Asia: Burma, Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand. The Golden Triangle also designates the confluence of the Ruak River and the Mekong river, since the term has been appropriated by the Thai tourist industry to describe the nearby junction of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar.

From the Tibetan Plateau this river runs through China’s Yunnan province, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam established the Mekong River Commission in 1995 to assist in the management and coordinated use of the Mekong’s resources. In 1996 China and Burma became “dialogue partners” of the MRC and the six countries now work together within a cooperative framework.
