Ky Thuong is a small highland commune located about 60km from the center of Ha Long City in Quang Ninh province to the northeast. With an area of nearly 100 km2, the commune has only more than 500 people living, mainly Dao ethnic people. This is a very difficult commune in terms of economy, transportation, and lack of other social facilities. But in return, Ky Thuong is home to a large Dong Son nature reserve with many diverse and abundant plant and animal species, a majestic natural landscape, cool climate all year round. This is really a place with great potential for community tourism and nature conservation. But now, people here mainly live on subsistence agriculture combined with forestries such as planting acacia and other forest products.

There are always ideas in the air and so also the pavilion’s roof hovers as a light sheet of paper in mid-air relying only on the glass shelves below.
