While Mr. Hao presented about his award-winning design of Suoi Re Village Community House; the winners of DAtE shared about their innovative idea for the “Self-help Proofing Village” design.

The “Green Innovation Forum – Sustainable Building and Architecture” has become a platform for people interested in the development of eco-building and sustainable architecture to communicate and exchange ideas in resolving the remaining issues of building and architecture in Vietnam.
