The Nature Of Architecture: W.N.W. Bar

by Tom Villa

What if architects were given simple tools and asked to build a shelter from materials in the environment around them?

Taking that approach, the vietnamese architectural studio vo trang nghia co. ltd came up with the WNW Bar. The design is intended to be a model for construction that values local resources and conditions to quickly build low cost temporary structures in areas affected by flooding... WNW stands for wind and water, the building is ventilated by the wind and water is used as a natural cooling system. The materials, mainly bamboo, provide the structure and the skin and are plentiful and well suited to the Binh Duong province in the southern region of Vietnam.
