“Architecture in tropical climates is always associated with rain, sunlight and wind. Inhabitants in a tropical area tend to be open with the idea of bringing nature into their accommodation. Tropical Space has tried to create the living capacity where humans staying inside could share the environmental responsibility, along with the surrounding community. Tropical Space has also delivered the inspiration of brickwork architecture through friendly, flexible and adaptive design solutions in order to create values of architectural aesthetics and inspiring stories about local sustainability only by using that simple material.”

Rice Design Alliance (RDA) announces Vietnamese firm Tropical Space as the 2022 Spotlight Award recipient.
“This year’s Spotlight committee was unanimous in our enthusiasm about selecting Tropical Space in support of the work of Nguyen Hai Long and Tran Thi Ngu Ngon. Having followed their work for some time, we were most drawn towards their spatial responses to local conditions and their active thinking around mitigation of the effects of climate change through the use of sustainable, cost- and energy-efficient materials. This is also the first time in RDA’s Spotlight history that a Vietnamese firm is recognized with the award, an important milestone of which I’m immensely proud, particularly for a city like Houston that owes so much to its Vietnamese community,” said RDA Executive Director Maria Nicanor.
