This year defense was divided into five sessions taking place simultaneously. On average, each session should have 26 participating theses. Despite the setback caused by the pandemic outbreak, the Architecture students and lecturers at Van Lang University had carried out dynamic defense sessions and introduced many exciting and hands-on projects.

The theses are themed on community infrastructures such as the Institute for researching and correcting teenagers’ behavior, schools, hospitals, general libraries, communal houses, and art exhibition centers. The chosen topic reflected the students’ caring for society, collective activities, and their wishes to create humanism infrastructures to facilitate mental development for young people. Some projects were even inspired by the student’s daily life and personal experience. Do Cong Duy – a student of course 22A, whose thesis on “300-bed Dermato Venerology Hospital in Thu Dau Mot City,” said: “I have been receiving dermatology treatment for a while. Every time I went to the dermatology hospitals, I usually observe and memorize the infrastructure specifications. Thanks to this habit, I have acquired strong foundations, which help me to complete my thesis.”
