Gia Lam Master Plan, Hanoi, Vietnam

The Gia Lam New Town Plan is a model for future sustainable urban growth in the rapidly evolving economic and demographic reality of contemporary Vietnam.  The master plan, envisioned as 12 million m2 of built area, reflects an amalgamation of traditional and modern models of urban and rural life.  The site is divided into two clearly distinct district types – along the highway, a dense commercial/ residential center lies separated from low/medium density residential / educational and cultural districts by the flooded plain of the Red River.  Green agrarian fingers further break down this low density pattern with the re-introduction of rural Vietnam into the concept.  The Master Plan is in an advanced development stage.
