Water is not only one of the most important elements in constructing and developing green townships, but also one of the “weapon we can use to combat natural disasters”, according to Mr. Dzung Do Nguyen – Co-founder and CEO of enCity.
After two months of spending time with our team, our 4 interns shared with us a little about themselves and their experience working at enCity.
With the area of 23.94 km2, the high-quality modern industrial township will support infrastructure systems and facilities for more than 180,000 people, creating more than 115,000 new jobs, 55 km new industrial roads, 115 ha new parks and 55 new schools.
On 16 July 2021, enCity was honoured to have Daniel Nguyen Hoai Tien in our Hanoi Office for our Friday sharing session about community participation and development.
With long-term enthusiasm for the city and three months of competition to show, the Sasaki – enCity team developed a planning proposal based on the idea of building a new highly interactive and innovative district at the east of Ho Chi Minh City (now known as Thu Duc City). In the proposal, Sasaki and enCity suggested that Thu Duc City could utilise the model of “Future Hub Living Lab”, which supports innovative start-ups and encourages community participation.
Believes small interventions can lead to big impacts on society, and studies the correlation between user’s habits and the success of a public space. Coordinates planning projects related to urban design, integrated landscape, eco township, and place-making.
An efficient city does not, however, necessarily spark joy. It is liveable, yet a step short of being loveable. Live updates of bus and train arrivals, a technology available in many developed cities around the world, are crucial to the functioning of the city, yet it does little to differentiate city from city or to build up a unique identity of a place.
The purpose of the website is to keep people informed about the progress of the master plan, crowd-source community input and for the planning team to acquire a deeper understanding of the aspirations and concerns of local citizens and enterprises.
