In response to the rapid and near total urbanization of vietnamese cities, Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed a prototypical house as part of an ongoing initiative to reverse the trend. Built within a region where only 0.25% area of the city is covered with greenery, the dwelling seeks to reconnect its residents with the natural environment. Entitled ‘House for Trees’, the scheme comprises five individual concrete boxes envisioned as planters. As a result of the unit’s thick layer of soil, the dwellings also serve as basins, retaining water and reducing the risk of flooding.

After releasing her series Cosmic Surgery last year, photographer Alma Haser is now back with her series ‘Twins’ that is actually just the first of two parts, the second will be coming in November.

The series features two girls who mirror each others every move, trying to become one. Alma Haser states: “I have always been fascinated by twins and their closeness in looks and attributes. Jess and Mona are of course not twins, and didn’t even know each other before the shoot, but they now call each other Afro sisters.”
