越南 70% 的人口主要都是依靠鄉村地區的農業產品生活,但是,過去二十年來快速的工業化與城市化讓近百萬公頃的農地消失,也造成將近300 萬名農民失業。同時,越南的人口也增加了多達 1500 萬,住房的需求直線上升,許多的建設開始動土,也侵犯到鄉村地區的許多用地。導致這些自然環境與棲地的嚴重破壞,人與自然的關係還有人與人的關係也遭到干擾。

70% of Vietnam's population now lives mainly on agricultural production in rural areas; however, rapid industrialization and urbanization in the past 20 years has resulted in a loss of millions of hectares of agricultural land, leaving nearly three million workers unemployed. In the meantime, the country's population has increased by more than 15 million people, which results in a high housing demand. This has then entailed massive waves of construction and sprawl land encroachments in rural areas and from other vulnerable communities. As a result, the living environment and natural habitat in these areas have been seriously contaminated and impaired, thus gradually disrupting the relationship between Humans and Humans and between Humans and Nature in the context of increasingly severe climate change.


As such, the aim of the project is to build a house which helps promote Agriculture and at the same time create jobs for local residents.


The proposed house is like a cube of earth cut out from a field.  Inside this cube are many nooks of the nest connected to a section of field at the top roof.

AgrisNesture 的結構主要有兩部分:外牆與覆蓋,可以使用在環境脆弱的地區像是郊外、淹水的地區或經濟較落後的區域。這些房子的群落是以不同方式組合,創造出一個平和的「大眾的空間」,也可以當作一個教育、健康與社區的基地。

Named as AgriNesture (Agriculture + Nesture), the house consists of two main parts: Frame and Cover which can be used in many different vulnerable areas such as rural areas, flooded areas, and resettlementor low income areas. Clusters of these houses are arranged in a variety of ways, creating a peaceful area of populations characterized with a Space for All. AgriNesture can also be used as a Home for All in the service of Education, Health, Community, etc.

加強版的樓層框架(包含基座,梁柱,地板,屋頂與樓梯)是用價格 15 億越南盾(大約 6500 美元)的加強水泥。


The reinforced two - storeyframe (including foundation, columns, floor, roof, stairs) are made of reinforced concrete which costs VND 150 million (equivalent to USD 6,500). In case of the extension of used area, available empty spaces can be used or the third storey can be built up into a three-storey house. The Cover (including walls, doors, partitions) will be completed in accordance with different regions with friendly materials available in localities such as vines, rammed earth, bricks, etc. The house roof is a place for Agriculture where a system of water rain collection and utilization as well as re-use of water is paid special attention.


AgriNesture 將是一個融合,互動和適應各種差異(自然與人為,住宅與農業,個人與社區等)的地方,從而使其不僅是實體空間,也是一個真正的人類住所。

Users will directly participate in the process of building the house and they will actively divide the spaces subject to their own needs. In addition, they are also the ones to produce the cover materials appropriate with their local conditions. In this sense, the building process will help create jobs and shape Homes which promote Agriculture development and bring about ecological balance as well as economic stability for the population in vulnerable areas.

AgriNesture will be, therefore, a place of convergence, interaction, and adaptation of various local contrasts (natural vs. man-made, residence vs. agriculture, individuals vs. communities, etc.), thus enabling it to be not only a Physical space but also a truly Human place
