Bamboo Wing / Vo Trong Nghia

Bamboo Wing / Vo Trong Nghia
Architects: Vo Trong Nghia Location: Flamingo Dai Lai Resort, Vinh Phuc province, Vietnam Completion Year: 2010 Construction Area: 1,600 sqm Photo credit (construction): Vo TrongNghia Co., Ltd. Photographs: Hiroyuki Oki Inspired by nature, “Bamboo wing” takes the form of bird wings and floats over the natural landscape of the site situated near Hanoi, Vietnam. The aim of the project was to study bamboo and the potential space it can create by using bamboo not only as a finishing material but as a structural one. This building is a pure bamboo structure, using no steel or other man-made structural materials. This unique structure, flying over the sky as bird wings, allows us to experience a 12 meter open space without any vertical columns.The open space can be used for many purposes such as wedding parties, live music concerts, ceremonies etc. The shape of the roof as bird wings is good for capturing the wind inside the building. * Location to be used only as a reference.

wNw Bar / Vo Trong Nghia Architects: Vo Trong Nghia Location: Phu Tho district, Thu Dau Mot Town, Binh Duong, Vietnam Project Completion: 2008 Construction Area: 250 sqm Photographer: Phan Quang The Nw bar is located in an artificial lake next to the wNw café. To create a contrasting space to the cafe, the bar is designed as an enclosed space which can be used for different purposes such as music concerts, shows, ceremonies etc. A structural bamboo arch system was designed for this dome; 10m high and spanning 15m across. The main frame is made by 48 prefabricated units, each of them is made of several bamboo elements bound together. The building uses natural wind energy and the cool water from the lake to create natural air-ventilation. LAM Café / a21 studio Architects: a21 studio – Nguyen Hoa Hiep, Nguyen Qui Nhon Location: NhaTrang, Vietnam Year: 2011 Photographs: Hiroyukioki Located in the city center of NhaTrang, LAM Café is the place where the local people and the tourists from every where can come to enjoy not only coffee but also the architectural space. The name of LAM, which means ‘louvers’ in English, expresses the structure and the architectural concept by itself. The roof that has the shape of coconut leaves covers 350m2 of the 800m2 total area. The concept comes from the image of coconut trees, which is common in this coastal city.

Re-Cell - Ecological Wall by Stanislaw Mlynski Pandora-ish Imagine a waste bin (you heard me). Take that bin and fill it with compostable products like grass cuttings, tea bags, & cardboard (just do it). Now attach your new plant-worthy cell to the facade of an ugly building with thousands of other composting bins (don’t forget the plant). You’re all finished!

The Sports Strip, like the Valley, is many things at once.
