Looking from the hotel lobby to the conference building
This project focuses on the canopy between the hotel and conference buildings of Sheraton Phu Quoc, Phu Quoc, Vietnam. The canopy extends through the hotel lobby to the front entrance. The entire structure consists of 5 types of vault-shaped modules; each in different sizes in accordance with the layout of the lobby. Constructed in bamboo, a native material to the region that is also known for its strength and flexibility, the canopy signifies the vernacular and traditional architecture of Vietnam.
