The Magic House

@ VOL 3 ON JUN 02, 2016

“The house is built around the concepts of water, air, wind and light.”

In The Magic House from PechaKucha Night Vientiane Vol. 3, Mair Hyman talks about the process of designing and building a dream house for him and his artist wife in Vientiane, Laos in the neighborhood of Ban Apinihan. The result is a stunning house that combines both Lao and Western elements.
