Architect Vo Trong Nghia Shares Insight into his Environmentally-Friendly Bamboo Structures

04/05/2021

During 2020, Ho Chi Minh City–based green architect Vo Trong Nghia saw his environmentally-friendly bamboo structures propagate throughout his native Vietnam. Vo, who studied architecture at Japan’s Nagoya Institute of Technology and the University of Tokyo before opening his eponymous firm in 2006, added to his “House for Trees” collection—residential projects that are home to both plants and people—including the award-winning Bat Trang House in Hanoi. He embarked on the Dong Na Villas, a residential master plan replete with roads and restaurants outside Hoi An. But perhaps most arresting are three ambitious new bamboo buildings: the Vedana Resort Restaurant in Ninh Binh, the Huong An Vien Visiting House in Hue, and the Grand World Phu Quoc Welcome Center on Phu Quoc island. He expands upon those projects and more.
