The 2020 Arthur Erickson Lecture will feature Vo Trong Nghia of VTN Architects.
VTN Architects is based in Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam. The firm has a resolute vision: the creation of "Green Architecture" that merges nature, local vernacular, and — through modern materials and methods — contemporary design. Vo Tron Nghia studied architecture at the Nagoya Technology Institute and the University of Tokyo before returning to Vietnam to establish his namesake firm in 2006. His novel approach to architecture and his innovation in bamboo structures have garnered international praise and recognition, including the World Architecture Festival Award, the ARCASIA Award, the WAN 21 for 21 Award and the FuturArc Green Leadership Award.
