Rural Tourism Accommodation

Rural Tourism Accommodation

RuTA Vietnam
Open
 

Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula. Vietnam shares its land borders with China to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the south-west. It has an extensive coastline which borders the South China Sea to the east. Its capital city has been Hanoi since North Vietnam and South Vietnam merged in 1976.

Mù Cang Chải is a rural district of Yên Bái Province, in the Northeast region of Vietnam. The district covers an area of 1,199 km².

The district is located at the foot of Hoang Lien Son mountain range, at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. To get to Mù Cang Chải district, travelers must pass through Khau Phạ Pass, which is one of four imposing passes in the northwest of Vietnam.

The rice terrace fields in La Pan Tan, Che Cu Nha and Ze Xu Phinh have been recognized as national landscapes and have been used to attract both domestic and international tourists.

This region of northwest Vietnam is poor and relatively undeveloped has a rich natural environment. In recent years, Mù Cang Chải has been a popular place to visit, particularly when the rice harvest starts around the beginning of October.

Mù Cang Chải Rice Terrace has been recognized as one of the unique landscapes of Vietnam and one of the most beautiful crops in Asia. 

The objective of the present competition for students of architecture and young architects, Rural Tourism Accommodation (RuTA) Vietnam, consists in proposing lodging for tourists that come to this rural area of the country looking for the beauty of its landscape. A place where nature and rural world, with the help of the rice terrace fields, play a key role in facilitating rest for visitors.

The rationale for this architectural space must be rice fields and its distinctive shape on the slope of mountains. It must highlight the importance of the rural area in which it will be located.

The new lodging must aim to satisfy the need for resting of tourists, most of them photography lovers that travel to this corner of the planet looking to be amazed by the beauty of this landscape of terrace fields, where colors and color shifting along the year provide a unique charm.

In a country with plenty of world-famous iconic images, this new lodging in the countryside, must become an architectural reference for tourists attracted by the beauty of the landscape.
