Center for the Study of Vietnamese Architecture

Ho Chi Minh City is growing rapidly. This building's structural system was therefore designed to accommodate expansion and adaptation. The tensile structure allows for the use of skylights, outdoor rooms, and increased natural ventilation. It functions as both a sunshade and a rain catcher in order to respond to the regions hot, humid, and wet climate. The spacial layout respects the principles of feng shui. The inward looking complex centers around a water feature from which one can see the architectural process at work: research, creation, and exhibition.
