From the architect. BES pavilion is a service space for an open community, focusing on the aspects of art and culture. Located in the central Ha Tinh city, BES (Bamboo + Earth + Stone) is set up from local materials and traditional building methods which based on the idea of centralizing the users.

The building’s users will have a great chance to approach and to be educated from the functions and effects of the building toward the nature and local community. The best way to learn is to do it! Joining in the building process to create their own specific space is an effective practicing condition. The solutions of the pavilion’s design themselves become some useful lesions: Aerodynamics (ventilation), Physics (light diffusion), Biology (photosynthesis, planting)…Those will help to direct the users’ behaviors in the future – for a greener living environment.

    congratulation to the design team for this project, Building speaks the language of tropicality. Through the photographs you could make out the interplay between light and shadow, blurring the boundry of inside and outside, which is further enhanced by the use of local material.

  • ghasle

    would love to see some pictures that show, instead of the building/spaces as an art object, some real community context, which seem to drive not only the programme of the building but also the texture, spatial organisation and scale.

    Ý tưởng về Ngói ÂM DƯƠNG được dùng cho TRE thật hiệu quả mà bề mặt trực diện vẫn giữ nguyên hình thái của TRE .
