There is a lot going on in the 1960s design of this villa by Tô Công Văn. He had an expressive style, as shown in this villa along the main street from the airport to downtown Ho Chi Minh City, located in the Phú Nhuận District. Aficionados of American mid-century modern architecture of southern California have called this style “googie style”, and to some degree, it fits with boomerang symbols on the wall and the parabolic window opening on the second-floor facade. This photograph was taken 10 years ago. The added awnings and junk around the house are good because that mean the building is being well-used and isn’t in as much danger of being demolished. Today the house is cleaned up, which is not a good sign.
