“Ashui Pavilion”, the pavilion surrounded by greenery

“Ashui Pavilion” the project by design studio MIA just completed in Ho Chi Minh City, was born as an oasis in the urban context, a light and ethereal presence.

This is precisely a pavilion built entirely of wood, a structure that does not damage the existing one, but rather blends in seamlessly. And looking at the final result we can say that the architects have succeeded in their intent, delivering a pavilion that will become a new architectural landmark in the Ho Chi Minh City district.

Since their first visit, the architects of MIA studio immediately felt the presence of nature in a magical place surrounded by various plants and greenery, and the need not to modify or eliminate anything, but rather to leave everything intact. Although at first glance the pavilion does not seem to have a well-defined shape, the wooden elements similar to straw follow a rigid grid organization, maintaining a perpendicular relationship between them.

“Ashui Pavilion” is also a call to memory, to memories linked to the Vietnamese countryside. An installation, therefore, that blends with nature and celebrates the past and wants to return all this to its visitors. Like a cloud, light, “Ashui Pavillon” seems to fade and dissipate towards the outside, here are all the photos.
