Hoi An Cultural Park
The site is an island in the estuary of the Thu Bon River, located between Cam Nam and main city of Hoi An, on a total area of 11 HA.
Hoi An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shop houses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.
The concept is to create a green park with open museum of maritime transportation of different countries that historically had developed trading in Hoi An from the 14th to the 18th century, exchanging cultures and traditions with Vietnam, such as Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese, Indians, Japanese. The park is planned to offer several attractions such as a botanical park, a lake, a water theatre, maritime museums and historical villages.
The port villages are not designed to mimic the historical architecture of the different foreign countries, instead are re-interpretation of the traditional architecture in a contemporary and green way, giving an open museum installation feeling more than a traditional cultural theme park.
