42000 bamboo reeds used to build a welcome center in Vietnam,

Vietnamese architecture studio VTN Architects used a bamboo net made of 42,000 bamboo reeds to construct a welcome center in Phu Quoc, Vietnam.

The project was called the Grand World Phu Quoc Welcome Center, and it is part of the Grand World Phu Quoc master plan.

Which is the megalopolis of Phu Quoc United Center – a brand new tourism and leisure complex on the northern island of Phu Quoc.

The building covers an area of ​​1,460 square meters, and the entire construction is made of bamboo,

which embodies Vietnamese cultures.

It also aims to become a symbol of the entire masterplan project, attracting tourists to the Grand World Phu Quoc.

VTN Architects (Vo Trong Nghia Architects) are known for their extensive use of greenery and bamboo materials in their projects.

The studio’ Binh House in Vietnam is also competing in the 40th WA Awards to be the winner of this cycle.

VTN Architects has succeeded, in meeting the client’s requirements, by creating a unique structure of bamboo,

which embodies the Vietnamese culture and is a symbol of Grand World Phu Quoc.

While the office carved two traditional Vietnamese symbols to create this structure,

the lotus and the bronze drum, the two elements were translated into dense layers of bamboo net,

expressing traditional Vietnamese cultures.

The use of materials also played an important role, to create an ecological structure,

without the need for any additional technological innovation.

The project is also energy efficient, using natural, sustainable materials at low cost,

in its design and construction.

Connected using only bamboo ropes and pins, the bamboo rods come together and create this sculptural look.

While the office does not use any artificial air conditioning, the artificial lighting is reduced so that it can only be used at night.

The bamboo construction process itself is unique,

this has been developed to a standard, and the construction process has progressed, a bit more.

The common system is also a challenge, since the studio used a lot of structural systems and the details of their intersection are challenging.

Vinpearl Phu Quoc’s structural system combines arches, domes and grid systems together,

accumulating knowledge in the use of bamboo, for different structural forms together.

The spatial quality of this project is influenced by the hybrid structural systems.

Although the structure is complex with dense layers of systems nested together,

the space is very open and transparent.

The space is left completely open due to the nature of the systems and the way the architects join the bamboo elements together.

This is applied due to the nature of the simple link system, which includes only low-cost ropes and mounting elements.

The modular and reinforced nature of the frames also increases the transparency of the structure,

and the nature of the grille system also allows for natural ventilation to enter through the grilles.

The transparency of the space connects with the surrounding grid system,

along with the path of the arch throughout the entire structure, between the interior and the exterior.

The openness and transparency also allow natural light to come in from the side and through the opening on the roof.

The light also comes in beautifully, judging by the sculptural form of the building,

along with the natural color of the bamboo.

What creates a warm and intimate atmosphere, although the structure is very open in terms of air flow.

While the space becomes a mixture of hard and soft spaces, the grid is very orderly and subtle,

with arches and soft bamboo domes, which make people surprise as they enter the space.

This is an exemplary project, showing the importance and authenticity of their bamboo architecture due to some key characteristics.

Because the project uses natural material without any chemical treatment, using 42,000 reeds in total.

The project is a pure bamboo structure and energy-efficient building, using sustainable,

natural and low-cost materials, and expressing traditional Vietnamese symbols.
