For Architecture students, the graduation project is truly a "spiritual child", invested by each student for one semester and defended just 20 minutes in front of the Graduation Council. That achievement is the tireless efforts of teachers and students. That achievement is the tireless effort of teachers and students. Many of the students' Graduation projects have won awards in many domestic and foreign architectural creative competitions, looking back at a "bumper" season of the award winning "architectural family" Van Lang!

EUREKA 2018 Scientific Research Student Award
01 Consolation Prize:
Tran Thi Truc Xinh - Topic "Improving the traditional fishing boat of people in the Southwest to serve river tourism"– (Instructor:  MA. Mai Le Ngoc Ha)

Western girl won "Eureka" with the theme associated with the river region

Eureka Science Research Award is a prestigious one for students who are passionate about scientific research, contributing to promoting the scientific research movement of students from different universities which are organized by HCM City Council in collaboration with HCMC National University. Van Lang University's Department of Architecture is also one of the annual "new guests" of the award.

DH Van lang gt khoakientruc 2018 1This year, the lovely western girl Tran Thi Truc Xinh with the theme "Improving the traditional fishing boat of the people in the Southwest to serve river tourism" - (Instructor: MA. Mai Le Ngoc Ha) has been excellent in 12 finalists of architecture and construction planning. Truc Xinh said: "This is the second time I have participated in the Eureka Science Research Award. It has not been able to achieve the highest results but it is the result of my efforts over the long term. In order to achieve this result, I have received the support and suggestions from the teachers through the Faculty Science and School-level scientific competitions, especially the extremely enthusiastic guidance of Ms. Mai Le Ngoc Ha. This is the first step for me to accumulate experience, because after each look back, I will overcome the shortcomings in each topic. "

The idea of ​​Truc Xinh comes from the actual needs, the potential of the river tourism. "Boat Homestay" was born, retaining the traditional shape of the fishing boat including the frame and original shape, but replacing the cover material and interior. The main materials are environmentally friendly such as bamboo (wall coverings) and star wood (making frames and boat seats). In the future, Boat Homestay will turn the wharves of Saigon into a place for trade of goods, tourist wharves, and forming a floating market in the heart of Saigon. Boat Homestay can exploit and use short-range inner-city routes to become the city's specialty; more specifically, like Grab takes advantage of wasted cars, Airbnb takes advantage of wasted houses, then the Boat Homestay model utilizes wasted cargo boats to serve traffic.

"After a while leaving the school, having the opportunity to experience real work, the results of Loa Thanh suddenly reminded me of a period, a precious journey of students. The best thing is that the experiences and perspectives on a local issue where I live can be accessed and shared with more people.  I do not dare to use inspirational words, but hopefully with this topic, I have shared with students who have the opportunity to approach graduation projects this year; please select a topic that brings you joy, emotion and value, but the key of a student project is to contribute to social awareness. Topics can start with the small and closest things. I’m profoundly grateful to my teachers and friends for supporting me in the project. The Loa Thanh Award is only a milestone, an assessment that reminds me that I still have a good track in the current study and architecture work. It is also a motivation for me to try and further academic enrichment as well as practical path ahead.”- Van Thinh was still touched when he mentioned the prize.

Inspired by the flora and sand dunes, "Ninh Thuan Agricultural Research and Development Center" is present as a gift of nature, a source of living for human beings, a meeting place for exchanges of production between humans and humans with nature. All create a strong agricultural relationship, an interesting and colorful harmony. A child of Ninh Thuan has designed a project towards the hometown with empathy for difficulties in "sandy land".

Do Ngoc Son - Third Prize of Loa Thanh Award in 2018

The topic "Nha Trang astronomical exchange and research center" was inspired by an astronomical phenomenon very close to humans as a meteor to form a block of works. Besides, the architectural block is a combination with the natural-geographical philosophy of Vietnamese culture to achieve a compelling and harmonious three-block layout

Ngo Minh Trinh Nghia - 3rd Prize of Loa Thanh in 2018

Facing the reality of youth culture in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, not to mention some degraded items, there is not enough room and space; therefore, it is difficult to meet the ideal playground for young people. Besides, together with the development of Ho Chi Minh City, it requires a positive change in terms of architecture, space and location to build a Youth Cultural House. Student Ngo Minh Trinh Nghia has developed the topic "Youth Cultural Center of District 2" – (Instructor: MA. Nguyen Thi Kim Tu).

Getting ideas from Saigon cultural characteristics with the visual beauty of Orimi culture - Japan, works are as a combination of local culture and the world. The lines cut randomly but still harmoniously are inspired by the alleys of the Saigon culture in order to create a harmonious mass and airy spaces, evoking the feeling of a typical Saigon.
