Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed a very unique house in Ho Chi Minh City, the southern capital of Vietnam. The house, named Green Stacking, is shaped like a typical high, narrow but long, tube-like Vietnamese building. The front and back facades are made out of concrete planters which are watered by an irrigation system using water from a rainwater collector tank located on the roof. The unique facade helps protect the inhabitants from the hot direct sunlight, the never-ending street noise and the pollution of Vietnam.
