  2. […] Administrator on Nov.01, 2009, under post Cambodian photoblogger ‘tumnei’ recently posted two photos of a French-erected building. The first picture distinguishes itself from the second one only that […]

    Sis, when its painting is getting old … you may like it. 😀

  4. tumnei says:

    I feel the same way, Samphors. The exterior should be keep untouched as much as possible. What they should reform or renovate is the interior.

  5. Sophat says:

    I support renovation of both the interior and exterior. Although I don’t agree that we should “keep untouched as much as possible” [or this is how I understood it], I think that as much authenticity of the original design and qualities should be preserved. I doubt that the 2007 completely shows this originality. I don’t have background in this area of architecture, but I think such renovation should involve expert knowledge like the one on Phsar Thmei. Great picture by the way!

      I neither have expertise in the area of architecture. It is just absolute my preference. I feel the combination of old-look exterior and renovated interior would give a good contrast. I totally agree with you that authenticity of the original is very crucial.

    Look at the 2nd building, it should be somewhere in French, but look at the Cyclo, I should be somewhere in Cambodia, where is it?
