A Spanish Hotel in Hanoi

BY EL FABRICANTE DE ESPHERAS
@ VOL 13 ON MAR 28, 2012

El Fabricante de Espheras talk about one of their projects in which they were tasked to redesign a Spanish hotel in Hanoi -- it opened in May of last year. The concept was based on bamboo, and they used aspects of traditional Vietnamese culture for the design. The new interior is very restrained and "quiet," especially compared to the loudness seen outside on the streets of Hanoi. In the presentation, they also cover how they worked together with the Vietnamese, surmounting difficulties in communication. (in Spanish)

BY ROBYN DIPPENAAR
@ VOL 9 ON FEB 20, 2017

Robyn Dippenaar's real leap of faith is not when she faced a big change in my life quitting her job, left her country and came to Vietnam, her biggest leap is when she took a chance to talk at this Pechakucha event. She says "Your leap of faith can be as simple as it is but yet still scary when you decide to do so."
