12 ministries and 1000 trees in the heart of Hanoi

12 ministries and 1000 trees in the heart of Hanoi

studioMilou is proud to have received second place out of 12 short-listed entries for its design for the international Ministries of Hanoi competition, a 500,000m2 project, to house 12 buildings and 11 ministries in the capital’s centre. Our approach created a linear east- west pedestrian landscape composed of many gardens, around which an elegant series of ministry buildings creates an architectural ensemble unified with undulating veils of metal, glass and perforated GRC panels. Designed to protect pedestrian and offices from the elements and soften the light, this signature element also references the colours and moods of traditional Vietnamese weaving. By night, depending on the lighting scheme chosen, transparency between the veil, offices and the gardens creates a lantern like effect. Interiors, like the exterior, create harmonious environments, including working, common and exhibition spaces, among others.

Today, our close friend, exceptional artist and photographer for studioMilou for over twenty years, Fernando Javier Urquijo, sent us one of his works. This beautiful, poignant image of a shepherd resonates with the underlying messages of Easter, especially the sacrifice of human company. And so it also resonates with things too many are feeling at this time, worldwide.
