Modern & Contemporary Architecture

     At the end of the 19th century, architectural characteristics were influenced by a new construction style brought by European urban planning and the interaction of French and Oriental cultures. Since reunification in 1975, Viet Nam's architecture has been impressively developing.


     Many new urban and residential areas, industrial zones, and new villages with major architectural works have brought high artistic value to regional development.


Today, architectural development cosists of five main domains, including interior design, architectural design, environmental design, urban planning, and regional planning. Also, issues on spontaneous development of urban areas, protection of architectural relics, and house building strategies are problems that need urgent solutions.
