Call for registrations to the Vietnam Ricefield Lodge competition

The Vietnam Ricefield Lodge competition presents a space where  the relationship between nature and human can be experienced. The project must highlight the uniqueness of the location and that it become a space where, on the one hand a Vietnamese family can continue with their daily life and on the other hand a tourist is able to know and understand their culture. 

This last point is important since tourists from Europe or America arrive constantly interested in immersing themselves fully in Asian culture and there is no better way to do so than living, cooking or working with them. This last point is important since tourists from Europe or America come to the place constantly interested in immersing themselves fully in Asian culture and there is no better way than to live with them, cook with them, sleep with them, work with them and therefore. So much to be one more.

What is the basis for this kind of architecture? We need a meeting space between farmers and tourists.

The project must highlight the uniqueness of the place and that it become a space where on the one hand a Vietnamese family can continue with their daily life and on the other hand where a tourist can / should know and understand their culture. 

Therefore, the proposed building must consider the possibility of combining all these options. The tourists who arrive will be welcomed within the same building of the rural family, so that they can share with them accommodation, cooking and even work if they so wish. A unique and unforgettable experience to fully know this incredible culture.
