Question of the Week

Gathering Information and Ideas from Nonfiction


Dedicated to promoting economic and environmental sustainability in Vietnam, Vo Trong Nghia Architects created a checkerboard design for FPT University Hanoi's administrative building that is unusual but efficient. Shaped like a dragon, the building faces the prevailing wind, and large trees on each balcony help cool the airflow, reducing the need for air conditioning. Although the building's unconventional concrete façade seems like it would hold heat and increase energy use, university officials report power savings when compared with the costs of powering its previous administrative building.
