Universitary Campus  Hanoi, Vietnam

The Science and Technology University of Hanoi, one of the most important Campuses which represents excellence in Vietnam, lies at the northern outskirts of the city. For this natural peculiarity of the area, it is characterized by large lake areas. The campus is conceived as a city and as a park, a social and cultural space and at the same time a sustainable and efficient environmental system. The Campus is a network of interconnected systems: culture, architecture, infrastructures, landscape and environment. The design choice is based on a two-party system: on one hand a university town as an urban fabric, and on the other hand a landscape as an enveloping and intact system that enhances the value of the pre-existing environment. The park sets off and interprets the site and context, transforming a marshy area into a landscape made up of a natural forest system, equipped with green areas, dew ponds for sporting activities and drainage channels. The campus has a park-like structure. Architectures, squares, paths, lines and stretches of water, green areas, everything is perfectly integrated and interconnected to create a space that can be expanded over the years, always guaranteeing high standards in terms of living and comfort, and its university campus is pedestrian oriented. Distances can be easily covered on foot, by bike and over water. The campus is a “zero emission transport Campus”. The paths, where the pedestrian and cycle paths develop, have a linear arrangement and are organized in parallel strips along which the buildings of the different faculties are arranged and at the end of which there are the specific elements of the residential towers. The orientation of the strips takes into account the prevailing easterly winds, which favour ventilation, along the boulevards are walks and cycling routes (access is allowed only to service cars). Green spaces penetrate the paths with a strong emphasis on integration between the park and the University campus. Along the main road, at the meeting of these different systems, there are the most representative buildings and the heart (square) of the campus will lie along the main path, that interconnects the various parts of the campus from teaching to research, to residency.
