Viet Nam News - - FRONT PAGE -

HAØ NOÄI — The first ever doc­u­men­tary se­ries on Viet­namese ar­chi­tec­ture has just been launched. Ti­tled

(Per­fect Bal­ance), the se­ries of twelve 15-minute episodes will fea­ture top­ics on the theme of ‘bal­ance’ and in­tro­duce the coun­try’s ar­chi­tec­tural styles as well as lead­ing ar­chi­tects.

Af­ter each episode, ex­perts will delve fur­ther into the is­sues.

Three ar­chi­tects host­ing the se­ries are Nguyeãn Tuaán Anh, Nguyeãn Hoaøng Maïnh and Buøi Bình Minh, who also act as con­sul­tants and cu­ra­tors for the show.

“Through each episode, the pro­gramme hopes to tell an in­depth story on ar­chi­tec­ture and the cre­ativ­ity be­hind the projects,” said Phaïm Anh Tuaán, Gen­eral Di­rec­tor of VICOSTONE, at the launch cer­e­mony in Haø Noäi on Thurs­day.

“We hope to pro­mote the ideas of do­mes­tic ar­chi­tects in or­der to boost aware­ness and un­der­stand­ing PHAÏM ANH TUAÁN GEN­ERAL DIREC

VICOSTONE of ar­chi­tec­ture in daily life. We name th­ese ideas ‘The guide­lines for cre­ativ­ity in Viet­namese ar­chi­tec­ture,’” he said.

Ac­cord­ing to ar­chi­tect Nguyeãn Tuaán Anh, the pro­gramme fo­cuses on high­lyqual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced ar­chi­tects.

“The build­ings in­cluded in the show are unique,” he said. “They have not been in­tro­duced in any other TV shows.”

The first episode will fea­ture ar­chi­tect Hoaøng Thuùc Haøo and his lat­est work, the Sen­tia Pri­mary School in Töø Lieâm District, Haø Noäi.

The fol­low­ing episode will be on ar­chi­tect Ñoaøn Thanh Haø, who has won in­ter­na­tional awards, and his lat­est cre­ation, S Space in the north­ern prov­ince of Haø Nam. The build­ing was in­spired by na­ture.

Haø has cre­ated a space with sep­a­rate walls that do not lean on one an­other or in­ter­sect. The whole build­ing is like a cave with a solid foun­da­tion. The roof is rem­i­nis­cent of clouds in nearby Keõm Troáng.

“If I am lost in a cave, my first re­ac­tion will be look­ing above for a light source,” Haø ex­plained.

“In nor­mal build­ings, the walls help us find direc­tions. I want peo­ple to lose their di­rec­tion and force them to ex­plore the space, to find the di­rec­tion by the light above.”

The se­ries will be broad­cast at 8.30pm ev­ery Fri­day from yes­ter­day on var­i­ous chan­nels in­clud­ing on the web­site:
