Design of a sustainable building in Hanoi towards Expo Milano 2015

Hanoi, 2014

Redesign or recover an urban space, by creating an "urban farm" building, is the theme of Compasso Volante 2014 competition. The goal is to design a place - taking the form of a traditional farmhouse as a group of small or medium-size buildings and open spaces for residence, cultivation and production - where culture and food can be mixed, promoted and evolved, attracting there people of all ages.

The theme will focus on Vietnamese Rice Civilization and its typical characteristics related to agricultural life and production in Vietnam's countryside, and should be linked also to the subject of the 2015 Expo in Milan "Feed the Planet Energy for Life" and to Vietnamese Pavilion: a part of the building should create a direct connection with Expo- site in Milan, in a sort of multimedia-window of Italian events.
