The project is located in Vietnam's ancient capital - Ninh Binh province where religion is diverse and complex, especially there is a parallel existence, even mix, of Buddhist and Christian (the West and the East). Faced an urban with complex architectures style, we are actuated to approach the design in terms of "nation" and “local identity” which we define as a cultural space.
