About your Experience
Vietnam Urban Design intensiveProgram details This urban design studio, called Delirious - District 4, will examine the urban patterns of a city in super-fast change; particularly areas at the edge of the hyper-dense explosion. The tube house as a unit of the city structure, and the strange moments of a half built city will be our starting point. Looking very closely at what is already there will be another starting point. We will look closely at the existing city and all its modes of exchange while proposing new configurations to its urban and architectural form. The studio will be led by Dr Graham Crist (Associate Professor in Architecture) and local architects in Vietnam.
