FINAL PROJECT: URBAN ART, NEW CONTRIBUTOR IN PUBLIC SPACE – tutor: Carlos Lahoz Palacio

My name is Duc Tran and I came from Vietnam. In college, I used to think that Urban Design was like a miniature game model, where any architect can plan the future by his control proactively with a most comfortable spirit. When adding in new ones, or giving away the old values, he needs to have a comprehensive view on the game’s matrix or full info collection for any details. I would like to take part in competitions and to be a participant in a group of idea creating, where all the design missions maybe small spaces but always have the tight connection/relationships with a big whole perspective: CITY. Then I often ask myself, what the city is experiencing and whether my sketch will contribute to the citizens. My obsession and also inspiration is finding balance between historical value and the modern standards of engineering and technology, which will form the identity of the city. I decided to participate in this master course in order to get more basis and new progress in urban design of developed countries. The historical / cultural European scene and its contemporary utility motivate me and this experience will be the best.
