Vo Trong Nghia's bamboo work at Venice Architecture Biennale

A bamboo work by Vietnam representative, architect Vo Trong Nghia, has been sent to compete in the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale in Italy.

This year exhibition is titled Freespace to describe a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity, focusing on the quality of space itself. There are 63 national pavilions at this year exhibition held by La Biennale di Venezia, one of the world’s most famous and prestigious cultural organisations, from May 26th to November 25th.

Architect Vo Trong Nghia brought the Bamboo Stalactite pavilion to the Biennale that has a simple design and low budget. It was completed in just 25 days with help from eight engineers and architects from both Vietnam and Italy.

The structure includes 11 modules. The bamboo was prepared in Vietnam and assembled in Italy. The flexibility of the bamboo and structure help create multiple shapes for a relaxing place under the sun even in the city or rural areas.

It is one of the highlights for small spaces as it can be assembled in schools, museums or in public parks.

Vo Trong Nghia, born in 1976 in the central province of Quang Binh, graduated from the Hanoi University of Architecture in 1996 and got a master degree from Tokyo University in 2004.

He started his firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects in 2006. Most of his projects are green and local product-based designs.

In 2017, Nghia has been awarded with the RIBA International Fellows at a ceremony in London, the UK.

The award, presented annually by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), aims to honour architects who make special contribution to the world’s architecture, thus creating sustainable works./.
