Titled ‘Human-Meditation-Nature’, Vo Trong Nghia Architects presents an installation at the Venice Architecture Biennale. Speaking to Designboom, the architect explains how the aim of his projects is to create buildings that provide a welcoming landscape, while reconnecting people with nature. Known for his green-filled architecture, the installation inside the central pavilion visualizes as a small forest of bamboo and plants. Visitors are invited to walk through the structure and in turn, show that architecture is not just about function and beauty, but an approach to connect people with nature.

Furthermore, Vo Trong Nghia provides insight into his studio in Vietnam. ‘We see meditation as a beneficial pathway to help people to avoid ignorance, purify their minds, improve their lives and bring people closer to nature. The staff at Vo Trong Nghia Architects are required to meditate twice a day and attend 10-day meditation courses throughout the year to continuously reconnect with nature, as well as to understand their minds at a deeper level. It helps to resist cravings, improve concentration and sensitivity to our surroundings, as well as better decision-making in improving our society, not just for our personal interests.’
