VTN Architects Win Asia's Most Influential Designer Award

Võ Trọng Nghĩa, founder of the prolific namesake architecture firm, VTN Architects, has racked up several awards this year, including the Asia's Most Influential Designer Award at the 2021 Designer of the year Awards (DOTY).

At the award ceremony held in Kuala Lumpur at the end of April, Võ Trọng Nghĩa was given the trophy for Asia's Most Influential Designer. The honor was bestowed by ACG Media, a Malaysian publishing house with numerous magazines devoted to promoting home-related design.

VTN Architects also nabbed two BLT (Build Design Awards) in 2021. The firm was recognized as the Jury's Favorite in the "Architectural Design - Hospitality" category for its secluded Castaway Island Resort on Cát Bà Island and the "Architectural Design - Residential" category for the Stepping Park House in Saigon. The awards factor in criteria such as creativity, ethical behavior, social responsibility, innovation and boldness.

This is far from the first time that the 16-year-old architecture firm has been recognized with a global design distinction. The two above projects were previously awarded at the Architizer A + Awards, the LOOP Design Awards, DFA Design for Asia Awards, National Architecture Awards, ARCASIA Awards and the Dezeen Awards. Earlier this year, VTN notched victories for architectural Firm of the Year and Best Commercial Architecture for their Nanoco Head Office in Thủ Đức.
