thesis / dissertation description
The building I design will be an icon, a landmark to publicize my hometown, (a now thriving Ho Chi Minh City, formerly called Saigon), to celebrate friendly Vietnamese people and the country of Vietnam in general. The reality of Vietnam and Vietnamese life is quite different now from the image of Vietnam in the past. This new image of the Vietnamese culture will be publicized through a series of projections in spaces, on surfaces, in the transformation into form, or by more conventional displayed photos of different periods of time.
