Book Overview

This publication has been awarded with the "Bui Xuan Phai 2015 - Love for Hanoi"-Award.

This large format book aims to visualize the recent urban change of Hanoi, Vietnam's capital.
Hanoi is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful urban sites in Southeast Asia. It was founded under the name of "Thang Long" in 1010 as the seat of the Vietnamese emperor in the midst of the Red River delta. Various historic influences mix here and form an inspiring mélange of different architecture: relics of stately grandeur from the imperial era; lavish, tree-lined boulevards from the French colonial period; ostentatious villas in quiet gardens; numerous peaceful pagodas; innumerable buildings from the peak of socialist planned economy; and new buildings signalling the capitalist economy, growth and Doi Moi. With the goal of transforming Hanoi into a "modern and civilized" metropolis, the political elites follow ambitious plans. 
Through our six chapters, we approach the city from various distances and by means of different topics. With our first chapter we take you over Hanoi with views of the city landscape from high-rise buildings (and even a drone); in another chapter we introduce you to some of the urban citizens of Hanoi, bring you into their private living environments, and share some biographical details about their life. The chapter 'Change over Time' illustrates the massive changes the physical fabric has experienced in the past 20 years through demolition, densification and new constructions. More than 600 images invite you to explore the many facets of this vibrant capital. In addition to the visual illustrations, this publication has assembled some essays by Hanoi residents who share their personal perspective and reflect diverse, multigenerational points of view.
