This is the third talk in the ADHOC TALK series of “Hanoi Ad Hoc 1.0: Architecture, Factories and (Re)Tracing the Modern Dream of Recent Past.”
Weaving the examinations of our speakers, through their respective research approaches - Architectural and Anthropological, the talk will impartially explore the parallels between ideologies and the differing responses to modernism across the country. The talk, in this case, will deliberately discuss the influence and linkage of large-scale housing development for industrial, social infrastructure design in Vinh, and also the modernist building types found expressed in the buildings constructed by the populace in the South. In which, the former enhanced the producing conditions in the subjective socialist context, while the latter demonstrated the embracement of modernist architecture – giving rise to the unique vernacular modernism of the anonymous architect in Vietnam. Join our guest speakers as they draw from their recent books on architecture in Vietnam and examine these modernist building types.

GUEST SPEAKERS:
MEL SCHENCK (Architect managing international design and construction, and author).
CHRISTINA SCHWENKEL (Professor of Anthropology and Director of the program in Southeast Asian Studies (SEATRiP) at the University of California, Riverside; Core-team member of Hanoi Ad Hoc).
Facilitated by Michal Teague, Lecturer in Design Studies at RMIT Hanoi City campus.
Co-organized by Ha Noi Ad Hoc and RMIT Vietnam, with support from UNESCO and Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Urbanization in the Global South.
