In November 2020, Mel delivered a lecture on the Information Age and its impact on architecture at the American Center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The first half of the lecture focused on the origins and change of reality we are all facing in the Information Age, while the second half showed the new architecture arising out of this new age, especially here in Vietnam.
Mel edited the Facebook video that the American Center produced of this lecture, and he invites you to view it now on his “Architecture Vietnam” YouTube channel. Here is a link to it: https://youtu.be/ycLaCleUWVY
There are now several new videos in Mel’s YouTube channel “Architecture Vietnam” that deal with modernism and Vietnamese modernist architecture. But this particular video on the new architecture of the Information Age is most important because it points us to our holistic future and the role Vietnamese architects are playing to lead the world in this new architecture.
