Dr. Intrachooto was among 7 recipients for 2019, selected by the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture (OCAC) as the country's leading creative figures who have already made notable contributions to Thai fine arts, design and culture.
"I am happy, delighted, and deeply honored that my decades-long work in eco-conscious design has earned this prestigious Silpathorn Award," he said.
"I would like to convey that designers also have the ability to safeguard and restore the environment with creativity, wit, and insight. And we can reach out to people's hearts with our works."
The Silpathorn Awards have been given each year since 2004, covering visual arts, literature, music, film, performing arts, design, and architecture.
Culture Minister Mr. Vira Rojpojchanarat presented the awards to Dr. Intrachooto and the other 6 winners at Ratchadamnoen Contemporary Art Center.
Dr. Intrachooto's work will form part of an exhibition on the award winners at the center in July and August 2019.
