Vo Trong Nghia: Building Nature

Vo Trong Nghia: Building Nature


 A career-spanning, slipcased monograph in two volumes presenting the work of one of Asia's most thoughtful and innovative architects.

With rising populations around the world and the pressures of looming climatic catastrophe, the work of Vo Trong Nghia is a call for architecture to transform itself from a source of pollution to a reason for hope. Nor is this idea anecdotal: the World Green Building Council estimates that 39% of energy-related carbon emissions can be attributed to buildings. An awareness of architecture's responsibilities has permeated the profession in the developed world, while new ideas and solutions are coming from places where these issues are most acute.
