A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Vietnam-based architect firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed an environmentally-friendly structure for FPT University that is located about 34 km away from Hanoi.
The façade of the seven-story building is designed to look like a checkerboard, with huge floor trees placed in the openings. The openings also let in lots of natural sunlight, saving on energy.
Measuring at 11,065-square-meters, the structure will also feature a green roof to protect the whole building from too much sunlight.
According to the architects, “the structure is intended to promote sustainable development in Vietnam,” and “instill sustainable practices in the future generations”.
