PROJECT SUMMARY

Low-impact greenfield university campus

Plans for a greenfield university campus in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta acknowledges the needs of both people and the environment. The design of this unique complex was informed by computer analyses of wind and activity flows.

Rather than an imposing structure, the architecture merges seamlessly with the landscape, and includes passive design to reduce air conditioning and as many outside shaded spaces as possible.
