The Urban Forest
Locating in the center district of Saigon, the project aims to give a new form of Vietnamese cultural architecture, which is not rigid and monotonic as local contemporary communal centers, but is able to deliver two main cultural theses:
1. a dynamic and lively space showing the fast development of the modern urban
2. a familiar and vernacular metaphor memorizing traditional architecture of Vietnam and unique features of the city
The design tries to response to these theses on different scales: urban, architecture, interior and the interrelationship between them, by combining the modern technology with traditional elements.
