Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Located on a land area of 50.5ha in Binh Duong province, the new campus of Vietnamese-German University (VGU) is recognised as Vietnam’s first sustainable campus featuring a flexible modern layout and environmentally conscious building concepts.

This new campus is a part of The Vietnam New-Model University Project – a joint effort between the World Bank, the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training and the German Hessen State Ministry of Science and Art – to develop an internationally accredited higher education programme for research and professional advancement for Vietnamese students. 

Arup, as part of a multidisciplinary design team led by Boston-based Machado Silvetti Architects, played a crucial role by providing total engineering consultancy services. This included civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and public health engineering, lighting and acoustic design, landscape design input and transport consulting.

An eco-friendly ‘academic town’

VGU’s campus design blends a modern and adaptable approach to planning and architecture, incorporating eco-friendly and culturally significant elements. The project stands out as an exceptional academic town, boasting a dense and compact campus that encompasses five primary areas: academic and research, science park, sports and support services, student residences, and faculty housing.

In addition, VGU has implemented various green initiatives to promote sustainability. These include the use of renewable energy sources, viable wastewater treatment systems, sustainable construction practices, and the encouragement of bicycles and public transportation usage for commuting. By reducing carbon emissions from vehicles, VGU has set a remarkable example in environmental responsibility.

This holistic approach also fosters an efficient infrastructural strategy, minimising distances between supply and demand, and thereby reducing operation and maintenance costs while enhancing user well-being. – August 25, 2023
