The PIG House - Ho Viet Vinh Architect & Partners
Concept design

Ancient Greek legend has it that the pig was the favorite animal of Demeter – goddess of crops and farming on earth. This was the holiest god for the Greeks. Since ancient times, people have used pigs to sacrifice this goddess. The magical transformation that turns humans into pigs appears in many myths, such as in Homer’s epic Odysseus. In this story, the crew of the hero ship was turned into pigs by the goddess Circe. Pig is one of the 12 animals that represent the 12-year cycle of Dizhi of China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, North Korea and many other countries in Asia. It is associated with the Zodiac Pig. Those who believe in Chinese astrology have always attached pig characteristics to people born in the year of the Pig. Those born in this year are often considered lucky and have a prosperous and leisurely life. PIG House is life within and beyond the form of this animist.

Next project | RETREAT HOME

Nestled quietly under the canopy of the coconut forest swaying in the gentle breeze, the simple house comes into existence thanks to the reflections of the dawn sunlight. The house has a simple modern look, inheriting the shape of a traditional house with 3 compartments and 2 wings, with a large veranda surrounding it. The veranda is a transitional space and acts as a climate regulator for the whole house. Not only that, but it is also a place where countless activities connect people with the surrounding open space. The rooms all open to the garden and the doorways pull the garden into its deepest recesses. The nuanced transitions of time and space also take place in the cut of this patio.

Next project | Glay Pottery Gallery

Inspired by Professor Thai Kim Lan’s collection of more than 7000 ceramic artifacts recovered from the Perfume River, an idea was born to revitalize the artifacts to match their value. All ceramic products are born from the earth and mature through fire. The heat of the fire has hardened the earth to the test of time. Dark red painted steel will represent this tempering property. The contrasting pairs of hot-cold, hard-soft are applied in the language of placement to highlight the value of time and place.

Next project | PHU DOAN PLAZA

Phu Doan Plaza in existing condition

Phu Doan Plaza at Committee Popular of Thua Thien Hue province (also called City Hall) is a lively and contemporary embodiment as a “Hue ancient capital”. Today the Plaza is an inclusive hub of Hue’s life outdoors but for decades this was not the case. Prior to renovation Plaza was an uninviting and inaccessible maze of raised and sunken terraces, hidden passageways, and gloomy malnourished trees. The opportunity for change raised the park, both physically and metaphorically, to the prominence of its location at the foot of Hue City Hall. The Plaza provides universal accessibility by bringing the entire site to street level, and encourages use throughout the day. The entire Plaza, with its generous lawn, interactive fountain, café, and ample seating amidst green groves of native plantings, are all built atop the nexus of Hue City center’s multi-modal transit system and acts as a connective gateway to all neighborhoods. The park functions as a 8.190 sq.m creating a welcome all-season spot for relaxation and public recreation.

Next project | Zen Garden

Zen garden carries the breath of nature, located in the coniferous forest, receiving the morning sun, immersed in the coolness of the beach. People move in free space without being constrained by position and frame of reference. The displacement no longer depends on the inside, the lower, the high and the low. Heaven and earth, plants, flowers, people become one, each step carries the breath of the pure land.

Next project | Le Ba Dang Memory Space


LE BA DANG MEMORY SPACE

A PRIVATE CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM, THE MOST MAGNIFICENT, STATE-OF-THE-ART AND UNIQUE ONE IN CENTRAL VIETNAM.

The landscape architecture of the museum with an area of 16.000 square meters is actually a full-scale “Lebadang Space” artwork. The paintings, sculptures, installation and “Space” artworks of the world-renowned artist Lebadang are periodically rotated with exhibition contents and display methods up to international standards. The museum is the realization of artist Lebadang’s dream about “an immense artwork, a cosmic landscape, a life in harmony with nature and towards eternity”. That the museum is located in Hue, the ancient capital of Vietnam, reveals his dream of Hue becoming the capital of Vietnamese contemporary art and culture in the 21st century.




“Đường mòn lối nhỏ  lượn vòng quanh

Trăm hoa đua nở khoe hình sắc 

 Thấp thoáng hương quê gió nội đồng

 Toàn chân đón cảnh mây trời hiện

 Một chốn tiên bồng giữa thế gian.”


“Small paths that revolve around

Hundreds of flowers in bloom

Village hidden behind rice fields

Flying clouds in the sky

What a great place. ”

Architect Ho Viet Vinh
















Le Ba Dang Memory Space brings the image of Co Loa into a unique creation of Vietnamese people. The emotions are depicted into the ground like a giant painting. The winding winding road leads us into the colorful reality picture, people and nature become one, the soul settles, the emotions flow. The flowers are so brilliant, the birds chirping, the wind breeze overflowing clouds, and everything resounds with true voices pulling our mind back to our childhood dream.

Next project | Thien An Community PARK

THIEN AN HILL

COMMUNITY PARK represents the exchange process between communities coming to a new land to settle down and live. They bring a lot of knowledge, customs and ambitions to create a life in the new land. Community is the space for them to open up, exchange, learn and grow. The process of agglomeration, interference and experimentation between communities has molded a new character for the culture of the historic ancient capital.

The park recreates the process of community formation through 5 main spaces:

  • Meeting space;
  • Exchange space;
  • Agglomeration space;
  • Experimental space;
  • Performance space;

Each space has a form and function that is reproduced through each stage of the process of community and cultural exchange.
