INTRODUCTION

26 hours later, I land in Ho Chi Minh city (former Saigon). The journey commences. This trip was originally conceived to discover and explore the ways of Asian countries (i.e. Vietnam) : Society, Community, Architecture, Culture. Nevertheless, underneath the beautiful "image" of Vietnam from the exterior lies critical situations which the country and Ho Chi Minh city is currently facing. This publication depicts the exploration of Vietnam through its Architecture, Ergonomics and Value of Nature. The second part explores the different experimentations regarding space distribution, composition and generation.

The creative process is hereunder not only an architectural concept but a condensation of analysis, experience and experimentation.
