More than expected, the Young Digital Forum – YAF 2019 has been a great success with the participation of nearly 1500 young architects from all over the country. Full day to the Forum, experience a visual “party” with new works of architects, new products – new technologies of suppliers, three sessions of quality professional talks and burning with Gala … young architects not only attended but also really experienced and told their stories about architecture. Perhaps, that is also the expectation of the Organizing Committee – Vietnam Youth Digital Club when implementing this special program.
The Young Digital Forum 2019 is aimed at young Vietnamese architects with their worries and efforts on the path of learning, integration and self-affirmation of self-values for career development. Regarding this, architect Nguyen Thu Phong, Chairman of the Vietnam Youth Digital Club said: “When choosing the topic of Expectation, we want to talk about the professional pressures that Vietnamese architects in general and young architects are facing. – We aspire to work and contribute but we also feel the difficulty, sometimes helpless, because the architecture sometimes fails to meet the great expectations of society: The work is not beautiful because many reason, stifling urbanization and commercialization, encroachment on green areas, lack of humanistic utilities for people, spontaneous construction and spillover investment undermining the country’s landscapes …. What role should young architects play, how to create new values and satisfy their creativity? In a sense, “Expectation” is the concern of all of us. “
The theme “Expectation” has attracted the attention of a large number of professionals and the social community with the meaning of great professional responsibility, but was approached modestly by specific stories of 15 speakers – both Vietnamese and international architects – It is a roadmap to find the direction, find the identity of each author, each architects, from their concerns, expectations to success, spreading the prices value of the work, fulfilling greater expectations for society.
Accordingly, each topic in the Forum has been received most naturally by architects, from approach to discussion, because it is their life, their passion and desire. for architecture. The arrangement of each topic seems to be random but very tight and full of intentions – Architects attending the forum will be guided by their instincts from the desire to innovate and create value, create identity and fulfill their own dreams and expectations and the whole society.
Journey “Innovation and creating value”
Architecture is present in all human activities. In the relentless movement of things, architecture reflects the development and attitude of people with themselves and nature. On the creative journey with many directions, many young Vietnamese architects look at the gaps in economic and social development. They pay attention to the cynical people in the countryside, according to the “living people” view of architect Doan Thanh Ha; or invest time, effort for upland children in school projects such as architect Vu Xuan Son and colleagues at the Architectural Office 1 + 1> 2 … They see the purpose and meaning of ants Architecture through the search for more appropriate ways to bring tangible values to the people in each architectural project.
Adding a perspective from the context of people’s daily life in Malaysia, Qhawarizmi Norhishaam (Malaysia) expanded the overall picture of the role of architecture in the daily life of Asian people. In addition, in the context of architecture is a tool to create landscapes, nature associated with people, the approach from architect Vu Viet Anh (TA Landscaping) to find simplifications for landscape designs along the timeline. Time will add to the diversity of architecture in life.
From a holistic perspective, the architects team is constantly thinking about the future for themselves and the community. In a world of technology, many architects go straight to challenging issues in order to find value. They proactively propose solutions to urgent problems of society. They actively cooperate with foreign colleagues. They are actively researching and practicing to create more works that are more in line with environmental and social requirements.
Obviously, on the journey of innovation and value creation, young Vietnamese architects have strongly expressed confidence and initiative in innovation, improved thinking and skills, aiming to proactively create prices. sustainable treatment for society.
Aspiration to create identity
It is an interesting story that architects opened their hearts to the language of architecture. The identity here is understood directly – Is the most characteristic, the most quintessential of a culture or an architectural style. The identity is formed and shaped with the flow of time. Identity is both abstract when approached on a large scale, but it is also very specific when looking at each case individually, studying each small detail.
