In response to the tropical climate of Vietnam, this proposed office building uses a "tropical double skin" to moderate heat gain while improving acoustic resistance from the noisy streets of Ho Chi Minh City. This design comes from Inrestudio and proposes the use of the "tropical double skin" as an "alternative office design for tropical urban environments." The facade consists of modules, each approximately 400 cubic millimeters, made up of six steel rings. The system of modules on the facade support planters filled with various plants and trees, casting kinetic shadows on the interior of the building.
