From Heritage Space:

Opening up the intellectual, multidisciplinary talk series (HS-Talk) in 2019, Heritage Space proudly presents “FINDING THE SOUL OF CITIES” – a presentation & discussion with associate professor Pham Thuy Loan. The event will be facilitated by Dang Hoang Giang, PhD.


With Vietnam becoming richer and richer in terms of material wealth, its cities having more buildings, cars, malls, the suffocating, tired, lost feeling seems even more pronounced in its residents. Our big cities are at risk of losing connections. Connections with the environment, history, society, and ourselves. Becoming a jungle of glass, steel and concrete, we are losing our souls.

How to retain these connections, to restore and heal the soul of the city? What are the spaces that are capable of providing safety, warmth and happiness? These are the essential questions to developing our resilience and to building for ourselves and generations after worth-living urban spaces. Reading Circle and Heritage Space would like to invite you to find the answers with our guest speaker, associate professor Pham Thuy Loan.

Architect, Associate Professor Pham Thuy Loan is Deputy Director of Vietnam National Institute of Architecture and former Head of Department of Planning, Faculty of Architecture and Planning, University of Civil Engineering. She is one of Vietnam’s leading experts in urban planning and design. Her research, counseling and teaching activities are always directed towards a humanistic and spiritually-rich urban space.
