I am Thuy Ryouta. I graduated from Ha Noi Architectural University. Architecture is my first love, if you want to talk about what moves me... the ordering of space, the visual pleasure, architecture's power to construct our days and nights.
My career is a trajectory from abstraction to reality. The architect's role is to make the mythic real.
I am willing to share a collections of thoughts and views about architecture which are hopefully worth to read.
Thanks a lot for visiting my site.
