Why just copy one style?
« on: July 30, 2021, 12:35:31 PM »
City being built with the style of Paris.  Just plug it into a rice paddy field.  There are at least 10 cities built of the same style all over VN.  SO it is either tube houses or French condos.

they should do like the jp, restore and maintain traditional villages and historical architecture. Many charming villages in VN are turning into third world display of wealth with  new houses but no taste.

It looks out of place, like a peasant in pajamas going barefoot and carrying a Louis Vuitton.  I'm not sure why Vietnamese are oblivious to that.

It's like some of the fobby Vietnamese just came to America with Kpop hair and dress and think that's the high life.

Many Vietnamese, like most Asians, with the exception of jp maybe are too pragmatic to focus on beauty. For example in our village, my great grandfathers house and my great uncles houses are probably the only two old fashion houses left. A symbol of tradition. They had some money  not flthy rich or anything. The houses are single story. Simple but attractive landscaping. Beautiful tile roof and nice wood. Old country charm.

Now with the expats money coming in, people are building peasant western style  mansions 3 story high, tall doorways tacky like tham thuy  hang on Botox. No landscaping, no allowance for spaces between houses. The amount of bad taste is just overwhelming. It will take vn another 100 years to become curator of class.

It's just the poor peasant backy mindset. They have no aesthetics. And is this really being built or is it just a concept? Like star city, techno park, etc... japan and europe keep their tradional architecture and landscape well. I hope vietnam doesn't become just like any other metropolis and still keep some soul and tradition.

It could be because of there's no indigenous Vietnamese style for the high life.  They have to copy something that is considered luxurious without any consideration to the grand scheme of things and it's purpose.  It's kind of like owning an iPhone and flaunting it to your friends an a social step ladder.
