Quyet Tien NGO : studied Architecture in Huce Hanoi Vietnam, ENSA-Marseille France and Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Lausanne, Switzeland. Received his Master’s degree in 2011 with a mention of excellence. He worked for the French firm Christian de Portzamparc in Paris, and contributed to a number projects of various different scale, from Grand Paris (Urban strategy for Paris) to buildings like the Nanjing opera or mixte use in Maribor.

What does architecture means to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Quyet Tien developed his thinking of architecture following three questions: What the site wants to be? What the program wants to become? What is the reality of the work? For each project he must find a catalyst to address these three questions. He hopes architecture can improve society through his work.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions? 

This competition gave me an opportunity to build my imagination about architecture in a basic and original way.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?


“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings”- Salvador Dali
I think he is right.
