don sahong / laos / 2020 / completed

This Hydro-Powerhouse in Don Sahong, Laos, transcends the stereotyped utilitarian sphere of its kind. Inspired by flocks of happy birds hovering above the Mekong in joy, with diverse formations, the origami forms of the bird’s wing and shape took precedent to reflect dynamism, vibrant and energy as required by the client. It is also to mirror its pride of a smart hydropower model which addresses the ecology and the environment within that region. This powerhouse and the affiliating structures are now the talk of the country, as a model project for the nation.
