Mission d'Architecture Indépendante
(Independent architecture mission)
An independent platform focuses on the experimental, theoretical architecture and urban think tank. Our mission is to search for a new way of thinking and questioning the conventional object/subject. MAI's main interest focuses on regional and vernacular architecture, rurbanisation phenomenon in Southeast Asia and the European hinterland
Currently, we are studying the architectural/cultural morphology of the Vietnamese community in Paris, district 13 in order to have a deep understanding of the mutation process of the built environment on a regional scale, the retrospective mindset which generates a global paradoxicality. Then take a look at a wider perspective into the Vietnamese architectural movement of 21 st century.
