title The Mathematical Logic Behind Lai Thai - A Geometric and Parametric Analysis of the Traditional Thai Pattern, Kanok Sam Tua
source P. Janssen, P. Loh, A. Raonic, M. A. Schnabel (eds.), Protocols, Flows, and Glitches - Proceedings of the 22nd CAADRIA Conference, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China, 5-8 April 2017, pp. 241-250
summary This paper investigates Lai Thai, a traditional Thai pattern whose grid structure and frame pattern have been clearly defined, in textbooks, as being created by freehand drawing. There are similarities between Lai Thai and patterns that are referred to as Look Thai. In this paper, one reference that Thai artisans follow: the "Kanok Sam Tua" pattern is analysed. Geometric analysis for the external frame and parametric analysis for the interior frame were used to unveil the underlying mathematical logic of the traditional Thai pattern Kanok Sam Tua, which is created from two triangles, and a circle. The results show that the exterior frame of the pattern follows three main rules related to (1) Proportion, (2) Point, and (3) Direction. This research also demonstrates that Lai Thai can be investigated using geometric and parametric analysis. In addition, it reveals that there is stochastic mathematical logic hidden behind the metaphorical Thai lotus bud design.
