This year’s winner of the House Category at the World Architecture Festival is located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.  The judges said of their selection: “This tall thin house on a narrow plot is a holistic piece of architecture…that is a simple yet elegant solution to a common problem in developing cities and offers an easily repeatable typology.  It deals elegantly with issues of security, privacy, climate and light in a poetic yet economical way”.  We think it is absolutely beautiful.
