The proposed scheme comprises smoked bamboo topped with a transparent ceiling.gridded bamboo construction incorporates a dense forest of natural materials. a clear ceiling floats above, creating a shelter from the elements that allows visitors to view the sky. the structure is highly porous, with entry points for adults and children to walk or even crawl through.

‘I want to bring nature back to the city,’ states vo trong nghia. ‘in ho chi minh city, the population has reached nearly 10 million with only 5.35km2 of green space – only 0.25% of the entire city. vietnam’s unrestricted economic development has devastated the natural environment across the country. this is the problem architects need to solve.’

dr gene sherman, executive director of SCAF added, the design of the SCAF pavilion centers around two central pillars of vo trong nghia’s approach to architecture: the innovative use of bamboo, and his passion – and self imposed duty – to green the world’s urban landscapes with plants and vegetation.’

the pavilion will be installed in two locations – brisbane and sydney – in 2016



the pavilion will first be installed on the grassy platform outside state library of queensland in brisbane in march 2016, before being relocated to SCAF’s courtyard in paddington, sydney in june 2016. the ‘fugitive structures’ series explores the potential of temporary pavilions as tools for experimentation and encourages new concepts and construction techniques. see designboom’s coverage of last year’s ‘sway’ pavilion here.
