Water & Forest Urbanisms - Field Workshop, Vietnam
Exciting times ahead for MaHS-MaUSP students!
In the spring semester 2019, a number of Asian universities will work together during an intensive Field_WORK_Shop in the Thua Thien Hue Province of Vietnam’s North Central Coastal region. The majestic geography of the province stretches from the mountains bordering Laos in the west, to the broad Perfume River plain and its tributaries culminating in the Tam Gian Cau Hai Lagoon (the largest lagoon system in Southeast Asia) and finally the East Sea. It as well hosts the UNECSO listed Hue Imperial City (including its citadel) and a number of royal mausoleums nestled in the landscape.
The Field_WORK_Shop will focus on a critical reading of the region’s history, mapping of the contemporary challenges and design across multiple scales, all through the lens of water and forest urbanisms. Students from different universities will work together in a number pre-defined sites. Students will create interpretative cartography in three different landscape conditions: mountains, alluvial plain and lagoon. The Field WORK_Shop will culminate in an exhibition and discussion in Hue (in collaboration with the Hue Department of Construction and Hue Planning Institute).
