Abstract: Bangkok has underwent rapid urbanization in the last few decades. Amidst rampant modernization, a rich artistic and cultural heritage exists within the collection of old neighbourhoods that constitute the city. In such places, consigned to oblivion, pockets of traditional indigenous life percolate under the lid of modernity. Old Minburi Market is such an old neighbourhood with a surviving sense of place in the continually transformed metropolis. Drawing upon Henri Lefebvre’s and Edward Soja’s conceptual triad of perceived, conceived, and lived space to analyse Old Minburi Market, this paper presents a study on the social production of place. The intention is to understand how the inhabitants perceived, understand and use space in their everyday lives, imbuing the place with meanings and signification in the process. In analysing the complex, intertwining relationships between the physical environment, the spatial practices and the lived experiences of the inhabitants, the paper arrives at insights into how people are made, and yet made the city.
