Exhibition Hanoi – The Future Metropolis with the participation of curators Sylvie Fanchette, Emmanuel Cerise, and Amelie Codugnella will be held at L’Espace from September 1.
As one of the oldest capitals in Southeast Asia, over the centuries, Hà Nội has developed a dense network of villages. With economic liberalisation in the 1980s, Hà Nội encounters many obstacles while extending its area such as the lack of a real land market and very high density.
Since the beginning of the new millennium, changes operated by state planners and real estate investors caused several concerns such as how to integrate villages during the urbanisation process, how to maintain a green belt, as well as how to prevent flooding effectively.
From a rich collection of maps and field studies, this exhibition shows how urbanisation has affected the city’s development.
The free entry exhibition will open to the public at 24 Tràng Tiền Street until September 21. — VNS
