A career-spanning monograph in two volumes presenting the work of one of Asia’s most progressive and innovative architects Vo Trong Nghia. The work of Vo Trong Nghia is a call for architecture to transform itself from a source of pollution to a reason for hope. The World Green Building Council estimates that thirty-nine percent of energy-related carbon emissions can be attributed to buildings. An awareness of architecture’s responsibilities has permeated the profession and new ideas and solutions are coming from places where these issues are most acute. Following a long recovery from decades of war, Vietnam has emerged as one of the most exciting centers of design in Asia—led largely by the work of architect Vo Trong Nghia, whose work has gained an international following. The buildings of Vo Trong Nghia Architects, established in Ho Chi Minh City in 2006, make clear reference to the past, and to Vo’s own adherence to the Five Precepts of Buddhist teaching. The architect’s two main themes—green architecture and bamboo as a building material—form the basis of this two-volume celebration of his work. From the Wind and Water Bar, his first foray into bamboo as a building material, to resort complexes, art installations, and his game-changing series of residences, House for Trees, Vo Trong Nighia: Building Nature proves that green architecture creates local relevance, beauty, and elegance in its own right.

From the world's leading publisher of Architecture and Architectural Practices, comes a look into how VTN Architects have used bamboo to create groundbreaking projects. With the climate crisis raging and awareness of humanity's detrimental impact on the environment now patently apparent, the need for architects to come up with sustainable new solution has never been more pressing. A key part of any green approach to architecture is the use of local natural materials with a low environmental impact. Bamboo, which has been widely used in Asian architecture for centuries as scaffolding and for bridges, pavilions, houses and other structures, is an ideal material in this context: lightweight, strong and readily available. In an effort to meet the challengers of the 21st century, VTN Architects has developed new ways of working with two species of bamboo in particular, the flexible Tam Vong and the sturdier Luong, creating a manufacturing workflow that allows for the production of standardised modules, a knitting technique that enables the material to span large distances and environmentally friendly traditional treatments such as mud-soaking and smoking. In Bamboo Architecture, we see how these methods have been applied in award-winning, groundbreaking projects such as the Wind and Water Café, Diamond Island Community enter, and the majestic Vedana Restaurant, alongside an illuminating introduction by Masaaki Iwamoto and an interview with the studio principal Vo Trong Nghia who offers an inspiring vision for the future of natural, green architecture.

In the 21st century, the architects and designers of urban spaces face great challenges in integrating nature in order to transform "cement forests" into "forest cities". Perhaps the best solution is to go green with vertical landscapes. More than just a decorative trend, this is a means of bringing life and greenery into metropolitan areas by using different framing systems to create compositions of plant life and adapt them to diverse settings, including offices, factories, parking lots, hotels, and installations within larger parks. Enriched by the reflections of the inventive protagonists of this fertile new aesthetic, Going Green with Vertical Landscapes is organized by theme and canvases early experiments conducted by famous design companies like Vo Trong Nghia Architects (VTN), Fytogreen Australia and Ryuichi Ashizawa Architects & Associates. All of these projects combine man-made materials, recent technologies, and diverse types of vegetation to conquer the vertical dimension. AUTHORS: Vo Trong Nghia was born in 1976 in Quang Binh province, Central Vietnam. He moved to Japan in 1996 as a Japanese government's scholarship student and started studying architecture. After graduation from Nagoya Institute of Technology in 2002, he joined the University of Tokyo's Landscape and Civic Design Laboratory under the Department of Civil Engineering. In 2006, he started his firm - Vo Trong Nghia Architects (VTN) - in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The design approach of his first Wind and Water Café project combined with bamboo treatment and construction brought him global awards and recognition. Takashi Niwa After years of professional experience in Japan and Malaysia as an architect of Noriaki Okabe Architecture Network, Takashi Niwa, a Japanese architect, joined Vo Trong Nghia Architects (VTN) as a partner in 2010. In that same year, he launched the Hanoi office and become the director. Niwa's projects have won numerous international prizes and architecture awards.

The founder of Architizer.com and practicing architect draws on his unique position at the crossroads of architecture and social media to highlight 100 important buildings that embody the future of architecture. We’re asking more of architecture than ever before; the response will define our future. A pavilion made from paper. A building that eats smog. An inflatable concert hall. A research lab that can walk through snow. We’re entering a new age in architecture—one where we expect our buildings to deliver far more than just shelter. We want buildings that inspire us while helping the environment; buildings that delight our senses while serving the needs of a community; buildings made possible both by new technology and repurposed materials. Like an architectural cabinet of wonders, this book collects the most innovative buildings of today and tomorrow. The buildings hail from all seven continents (to say nothing of other planets), offering a truly global perspective on what lies ahead. Each page captures the soaring confidence, the thoughtful intelligence, the space-age wonder, and at times the sheer whimsy of the world’s most inspired buildings—and the questions they provoke: Can a building breathe? Can a skyscraper be built in a day? Can we 3D-print a house? Can we live on the moon? Filled with gorgeous imagery and witty insight, this book is an essential and delightful guide to the future being built around us—a future that matters more, and to more of us, than ever.

Since its founding in 1977, Cutler Anderson Architects has evolved to understand that the ultimate objective of any architectural design is to reveal what is true about all of the circumstances of a project. From place to program, from materials to shape, all components need to be understood and designed into a harmonious whole that reveals each component's nature. This genuinely rigorous task has been both the focus and the intellectual stimulant of our practice and, it is hoped, will continue to be our passion in the future. This single-minded attitude has led to successful and award winning projects on three continents. The firm's staff of fourteen is currently engaged in both residential and commercial projects throughout ten states, plus Poland and the Czech Republic. Our ultimate goal on every project is to produce projects that are not only beautiful but also emotionally enlightening.
