Located next to Duc Tho stadium closed  for nearly ten years due to damages, Re-ainbow is a multifunctional construction project for community built of both “static” and “dynamic” categories. “Static” categories include health station, public restrooms and ancillary areas. Around the central garden is the “dynamic” categories featuring classroom, art performance theater, meeting place, sports fitness center, refreshment tent, which possess multiple functions with the use of movable partition walls and enclosing walls according to their respective needs. Outside this works  are areas for physical training such as volleyball, badminton, long jump, and other outdoor activities as well.


The aim of the project is to help improve public capability to adapt and respond to climate change via re-use of waste items and efficient use of energy. A collection and reuse of a variety of old/ broken construction materials such as scaffolding steel pipes, sheet metals, bricks, ashlars,  bathroom ware, tables and chairs,…with the local people’s involvement in manual construction are proposed in order to create a structure secure enough to stand heavy storms. Ventilation and natural lighting are also dealt with efficiently. Solar energy is converted into electricity for lighting facilities and heating water for daily use. Rain water and used water are also utilized.
