“Every morning, the first thing that I would like to have is drawing first lines in a comfortable and joyful mind. I used to dream of an office-house for not travelling in a frequent traffic-jam and highly polluted place like Hochiminh City. I do not reluctantly think of green, environmentally sustainable or eco- architecture....


I simply want our studio like a wild-cage which is bathed in sunlight, inundated by rain-water, fully surrounded by tree... and non-frontier space ... And we are like wild beasts in cage, stay temporary momentary but thirst for living.”
