pavilion of dream terraces by H&P architects

This building is just a concept for now but it looks wonderful and original, trying to offer a modern approach to the traditional Vietnamese architecture. Since Vietnam is known for its wet rice cultivation and the way they grow it is on terraced fields, this part of Asia was also settled on agriculture and it has become its tradition.

The practice of H&P architects designed the Vietnam Pavilion for the 2015 Milano Expo and tried to incorporate agriculture and architecture to provide a space that is sustainable and also aesthetically appealing.

Conceived from structural steel frames, with modules of up to 7.5 meters in length, linked through joins or simply overlapping and with a the framing system covered by salvaged wood, the design provides resistance to force, space for the exhibits and furnishings, water, electricity supply and planter.

The field that covers the building also provides food and improves the micro-climate.
