House for Trees

Posted on Thu, 9 Oct 2014 by midcenturyjo

Mystical, magical, green. A house for its human occupants and a house for the trees. More importantly a house that gives to the city as well. The design for the award winning House for Trees in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam aims to address the overwhelming lack of vegetation in this urban centre as well as providing a connection to nature and a means to alleviate flash flooding from storm water run off. Each building is a giant planter box. Monolithic at ground level, ethereal above. By Vo Trong Nghia Architects.

OH I love this, the playfulness of the heights and plants and almost maze like structure is just brilliant!

I'm not often blown away by architecture, but… wow. It would make a wonderful plan for village-style single-room housing as well.
