Precedent | Koi Cafe in Hanoi | Farming Architects

Love this Hanoi cafe!  The materiality of the space is brilliant and it has an aquaponics farm in it.


This has given me a more solid idea of how more permanent new features built into and around the ruins may be formed, in contrast to the delicate touch where elements navigate the ruins elsewhere.  The Hedmark Museum by Svere Fehn comes to mind again.
