From October 30 to November 2, 2023, Montfort del Rosario School of Architecture and Design, Assumption University, participated in a Summer Workshop with the Architecture Program of Vietnamese-German University in Vietnam for students to promote co-working and co-learning together among students of both universities. This project focuses on creating and designing a façade system suitable for tropical climates and learning to practice working skills in the wood workshop. The study site is the internal space of Vietnamese-German University. The project received good support and cooperation from the university. The project aims to explore and present possibilities to improve and improve user comfort.

AAU and VGU students were divided into five mixed groups. To work brainstorming and under the guidance of the lecturers. A challenge with this project was the limited time to design a new façade for the chosen area to combine with the existing façade and walkways to develop, protect and improve comfort to the architectural style that is attractive, creative and blends in with the surroundings.

Reflections from Sarah’s thesis project

November 10, 2023By archmanNews

Sarah Okafor’s thesis project at Assumption University’s School of Architecture and Design has transformed into an inspiring book that is more than just design – it is a journey of life, inspiration, and creativity. The book also outlines and reflects the unique design process practiced in AAU’s Product Design Program that aims to foster an autotelic personality in students thus leading to a discursive design practice that converses with social context and tackles significant problems. The book was produced, published, and distributed by art4d in collaboration with Assumption University’s School of Architecture and Design. It is one of the unique projects commemorating the 25th anniversary of AAU. Dive into a world of storytelling and inspiration as Sarah shares her unique vision.
