“All the students are watching and looking forward to the project to build the Youth Cultural House soon to be completed, so that they enjoy a space of cultural, modern and spiritual sense of living for students at the National University Village in Ho Chi Minh City.”

Overall perspective of the project

This project is located amidst a spacious green space of over 3.5 hectares. The project has many cultural items catering to the needs of students. The main building of this project is designed in hexagon style to maximize the view of the surrounding space.

This project is expected to become a symbol for the entire campus area of Vietnam National University, a joint project designed by GK Archi and Nihon Sekkei. They have designed this work in a modern and uniform style on the vertical. Based on respect for the scale and beauty of simple cubes.

Design of the facade of the building

Surrounding the block is a simple façade with colorful backdrop walls that create a buzz for the building. The facade system is staggered, creating a ripple effect on the surface of the building, but still ensure harmonious elements in the overall architecture.

The work is well researched in aerodynamics, as well as air convection. The use of open space around a huge skylight in the center will create airflow in the building. Aerodynamic studies will allow the user to feel comfortable with the temperature as well as the friendliness of nature at any location in the building.
