Green Ladder is constructed to resemble a dense green forest, and to raise awareness of bamboo’s strength and viability as a ‘green steel’ building material. SCAF visitors will be able to enter and hide amongst the elegant grid-like bamboo construction of the pavilion.

Vo Trong Nghia Architects (VTNA) has won numerous awards and created highly innovative and functional buildings throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Vo has instilled in his practice, of 60 Vietnamese and international architects, engineers and staff, a unique work philosophy based on a mandatory 2 hours of daily meditation and frequent silent meditation retreats for the team. He is on a mission to encourage other creative companies throughout the region to embrace his work ethic and his environmental goals.

In keeping with the philosophy of VTNA, SCAF has organised a series of talks and events in association with Green Ladder including an architect’s talk by Vo Trong Nghia on Thursday, 7 July 2016 at 5pm. Throughout the 6-month period that the Pavilion will be on display at SCAF there will be a series of meditation and yoga programmes, details will available at the official website.
