Vietnam Ricefield Lodge Architecture Competition

Vietnam Ricefield Lodge Architecture Competition

The Vietnam Ricefield Lodge competition presents a space where you can experience the relationship between nature and human beings. The project must highlight the uniqueness of the place and that it become a space where on the one hand a Vietnamese family can continue with their daily life and on the other hand where a tourist can / should know and understand their culture. This last point is important since tourists from Europe or America come to the place constantly interested in immersing themselves fully in Asian culture and there is no better way than to live with them, cook with them, sleep with them, work with them and therefore So much to be one more.Therefore, the proposed building must consider the possibility of combining all these options. The tourists who arrive will be welcomed within the same building of the rural family, so that they can share with them accommodation, cooking and even work if they so wish. A unique and unforgettable experience to fully know this incredible culture

What is the basis for this kind of architecture?
