HA NOI (VNS)— Local and foreign individuals and organisations are invited to take part in a design contest for low-income housing, which kicked off on Monday in Ha Noi.
Organised by the Viet Nam Association of Architects (VAA) in co-operation with the Ministry of Construction, the contest challenges participants to design low-cost apartments with an area of 25-70 sq.m or devise a scheme to divide large apartments into smaller ones.
"The competition aims to find the best solution for the real estate market in the country. If we can maximize space, housing prices will go down by 20-30 per cent while quality remains the same," said VAA chairman Nguyen Tan Van.
Entries must be sent to VAA's office at 22 Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Hoan Kiem District, Ha Noi before April 10. — VNS
