The rapid transformations of Vietnamese culture are being strongly felt in new demands for housing: the extended family living habits are breaking down as children move out to follow educational and career opportunities; young families are requiring a greater degree of separation and independence from their parents; leftalone older couples would like to rent spaces in the house to supplement their income. The studio proposed urban fabrics and housing typologies which investigate the following issues: – Integration of new fabrics into existing contexts. – Expansion of the public realm (programs & open space). – Family-structure changes & effects on housing type. Adaptability of housing to changing demands.

Location is the large site (scale 200m x 400m) bounded on all sides canals that is presently occupied by old storage buildings and factories. The focus is to be on the development of typologies and multiplications/ grouping of typologies to make housing tissues, developments with open spaces, on the interplay between housing tissues (with a relevant density for HCMC) and public space and the relationship tissue - urban structure (canal/ bridge/...). District 8 is kind of many space for temporary houses which are not suitable for long â€“ term settlement. The concept was chose is to make a central park to get more green space and public space for inhabitant, more space for social gathering. Besides, making this place become playground for kids, who lack space to organize outside activities, is also the priority of this project. Take an idea of long strips, as the direction of the canal in front of, the park is a combination of multifunction strip: use for walking, fishing, coffee kiosk and resting, etc. Moreover, the design is also focus on making the diversity of terrains to simulate the water waves and make interesting changes of spaces.

Landscape is a very important part of an urban, which can decide how successful an urban be. Those elements which are relative to landscape strictly include: history, streetscape profiles, threshold spaces, human activities, topography/ section, circulation, spatial armatures, etc. Understand them within urbanization process is necessary to illustrate the features, connection, changing elements transformed from rural area to urban area and propose idea concepts.
Educational zones is fragmented in small streets. Industrial zones have gathered along two main streets (Ho Hoc Lam Street and An Duong Vuong Street) that lead to main harbor and main avenue (Vo Van Kiet avenue) to show the continuing in transportation and circulation.
