Von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects believe architecture evolves in conversation with the specific conditions of each particular building project. At the same time, they consistently seek a contemporary form of expression. Through a design process lasting several years—involving close communication with the client and continuous discourse around the country’s architectural history—the Vietnamese National Assembly Building, Hanoi, emerged as a distinctive design that resolves tensions between modern and traditional, local and international architecture.
In this volume of the gmp FOCUS series, the architects convey through plans, images, and accompanying text, a vivid and detailed introduction to the Vietnamese National Assembly Building, awarded the Vietnamese National Prize for Architecture. A comprehensive essay offers an informative history of modern architecture in Vietnam.
