Thu Thiem MasterPlan (Un-Built)
Region: Ho Chi Minh City, VIETNAM
Ho Chi Minh City has been gaining momentum in commercial and population growth rates. But with growth, the downsides of urban development such as urban sprawl, congestion and inadequate housing also set in. In the planning of Thu Thiem urban centre, we are aiming at eventual self-sufficiency, while maintaining a nexus of links to the larger context of Ho Chi Minh City. We envisage a sustainable, livable city, where environments are tailored to meet the needs of the people and the demands of a commercial hub.
