Vietnamese Cultural House to Open in France in 2018

Starting next year, Parisians won’t need to travel far to get a dose of Vietnamese culture.

According to French publication Le Bonbon, a 5,000-square-meter cultural house known as the Alliance Maison Vietnam (AM-VN) is currently in the works and will open to the public in 2018, promoting Vietnamese culture and tourism in France.

The project is headed by Anoa Suzanne Dussol, who was named a Vietnamese tourism ambassador by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, reports French-language news outlet Le Courrier du Vietnam. Dussol was born in Vietnam in 1957 but moved to France at the age of four.

Once complete, visitors to the AM-VN will be able to enter the space through a towering entrance hall, which opens onto a 1,900-square-meter garden. The AM-VN will consist of two main buildings, one a traditional Vietnamese structure and the other a glass building. Indoors, the structures will be decorated with traditional Vietnamese bas-reliefs and woodcarvings, which will be made in Vietnam and shipped to France for assembly.

AM-VN aims to host exhibitions, performances, parties and other events to promote Vietnamese culture abroad, in addition to holding a series of restaurants and shops within the complex.

The cultural house is set to open on September 2, 2018, the 73rd anniversary of Vietnam’s declaration of independence from France.
