Architect Vo Trong Nghia wins the architect of the year title at the Dezeen Awards 2019.

This is an annual awards organised by the Dezeen Magazine.

Participants came from famous architect studios including Mecanoo, ODA New York, Studio Giang, and Syudio Mk27. The judges are leading world architects like Sou Fujimoto, Lydon Neri, Kunle Adeyemi, Sonaii Rastogi and King Liu who would choose the winner based on such criteria as business success, influence, vision, and customers' consent.

According to judges comments, Vo Trong Nghia Architects Studio has an acute awareness of the context that it is working in. Vietnam's past is very much present in the work but it also recognises the modernity of the country. Vo Trong Nghia's projects signify a transition from old to new. The studio has developed its own school of thought and its own techniques.

Vo Trong Nghia Architects Studio was founded in 2006 and has offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, working internationally on cultural, commercial, and residential projects.

Recent projects include a series of six triangular concrete pavilions connected by a low block of office spaces for Vietnamese telecommunications group Viettel, which has also been shortlisted in the civic building category.
