El Fabricante de Espheras

A Spanish Hotel in Hanoi

PRESENTED ON MAR 28, 2012
IN VALENCIA @ VOL 13
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)
