Saigoneer Podcast: Vietnam's Modernist Architecture With Book Author Phạm Phú Vinh

A new Saigoneer Podcast episode is out now!

This week, we return to one of our favorite topics: Vietnamese modernist architecture.

Phạm Phú Vinh, an architecture student and researcher on this style, joined us (1:16) to talk about the prevalence of mid-century modernist buildings in southern Vietnam, why this home-grown style is so overlooked by the public, what he thinks about Saigon's current architectural trends, and more.

We also chatted about Vinh's new book, Poetic Significance, Sài Gòn Mid-Century Modernist Architecture, which is available on Amazon, Book Depository, and other e-commerce sites. An extract of the book is available here.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (41:00).

Vinh's book can be purchased here.
