The Jury of Alternative 33: an ideas competition for the urban revitalization of district 33 (Firdusi) awarded the first place to Nguyen Quy Phu’s project (Vietnam).
"The project was most successful in incorporating the existing urban fabric and heritage remaining on the site within a new development scheme. It clearly outlines a process that will
allow multiple stakeholders, whether investors or designers, to be involved in the project without dictating an overarching architectural/design direction. Rather, it offers a ‘framework
for cultural expression’ where multiple design directions may be played out. The authors are successful in maintaining the domestic scale of the existing urban environment while
incorporating the outlined brief requirements for more density. The attention devoted to resolving a diversity of spaces, use and function makes the project poised to move quickly from
ideation to implementation''; (Jury Statement, 20, September, 2020).
In a few days, for a period of at least six months, the virtual exhibits of all the projects will be available at alt33.info.
