The house includes five separate prismatic blocks, each of which contains a tree planted on its roof. Its design offers an inspiring solution to the city's growing pollution and shortage of green space. The construction was completed on 350 square meters in Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Binh District and was the first of its kind in Vietnam built with a bamboo framework.
