Movement Form - Space Study Individual Academic Project, 2011
The cube separated from the outside by six square faces . It have the limitation. Based on the limitation, I insert the unlimitation by the movement . 8
Arrows shown in yellow colour are the directions of movement They break the perfect cube, break all covers and boundaries ...
The movements have not finished ... As it always have new beginnings when others ends . So the form is NOT LIMITED by everything, it could be pervasive and continued without the end point. 9

Architecture is a material structure with different levels of concentration, enabling to help people to access directly to the nature (which includes people and surrounding things) with a reduction of friction. The more concentrative and condensed the platform is, the more stable the construction is. The emptiness always makes it tottering. When it is concentrative, it is more likely to disappear, and the stableness also brings a division. But the more it keeps in pace, the more the concentration is minimized, nearly equal to zero. That is air, a direct getting contact, without condition and friction.

People can over the hill to get to the library and from the library, go down the hill . So there are no boundaries between the floor and landscape....
The functional spaces are mixed among the nature 20
The walkway links the “natural outside” and the “artificial inside”, It works as an intermediate to filter nature for the building to be in harmony with nature...

CITADEL and THE WAY OF HISTORY . Bien Hoa Citadel is the only ancient military architecture in the South of Vietnam to remain until today. It shows many significant historical events of the history of Bien Hoa city . Over many years, the original area of the Citadel decreased from about 10 ha to 1.08 ha. With tThe first stage happened when French army occupied it in 1861... And later while Bien hoa city is experiencing a rapid growth in the urbanization, the Citadel become a forgotten place. While, after three-time reconstructed, its inheritance is considered completely an important historical heritage to the city .
1816 Bien Hoa Citadel was built in under the king Gia Long. At that time, it was made from soil. 1837 King Minh Mang rebuilt the Citadel on the foundation walls of the old citadel, with laterite as building material .
From 1816 to now
It became a defensive stronghold for the Nguyen Dynasty CITADEL AREA
1861 When the French army occupied Bien Hoa city, they reduced the citadel's size and rebuilt it on the foundation walls of the old citadel, with brick as building material. They also built camps and other buildings
The remaining area of the old citadel was become greenery

Nort east, north west wall and blockhouses in Citadel were destroyed . Bien hoa city was experiencing a rapid growth in the urbanization. New buildings was built nearby the citadel and encroached greenery area.

East building was built in under the Colonial French era
Area of greenery beside the Citadel remain 0.8 ha
West building was build and renovated during the citadel's existence
