The French colonial architecture in Da Lat

Like many cities around Vietnam, Dalat has a lot of historical buildings in city.

The French had planned and constructed  Dalat city as a place of administration, resort and travel. Many building from that time were restored, renovated and were used in good condition by today. Some of them were used for tourists attraction only.

Those colonial buildings are important parts of Da Lat, they also represents the soul, the image and symbol of this romantic city.

Dalat Teacher's Training College is famous with the high the bell tower. It was designed by architects Moncet and Ernest Hebrard in 1927. According to the International Union, this construction is one of the World’s typical 1,000 constructions in 20th century.

Building Extension of RMIT University - Located at District 7, Ho Chi Minh City


The second academic building is being developed on the the Saigon Campus to extend the capacity of the campus and support the growth demands of the campus.

The building forms part of the campus masterplan, integrating with the first academic building. A mixture of general teaching spaces, staff accommodation and specialist facilities are catered for in the facility.

It is intended that AB2 will primarily provide a series of teaching and learning spaces for all disciplines currently catered for in Vietnam. However the building also must provide a series of specialist learning spaces, mainly focussed around digital design/media and communication.
