Name: Anh Vu
My first encounter with architecture was through the elegant changes in our home by the skillful touches of a local architect. Under his direction, the construction workers executed the work, line after line, cut after cut, slowly but surely, the Vision became a reality. The end of his work was the beginning of my journey. I spent hours reading his drawings and comparing each “pocket images” (interior elevations) to each wall in the house. With a tape measure, I verified the correlations between the drawings and the building. And so, my love for architecture began.
In 2002, I participated at the Van Lang Architecture School through rigorous exams in mathematic, physic and drawing. My education was barely half way complete when I was re-routed on an unexpected trip which I am still grateful for: My family gained entrance to the United States. Here I restarted my training at Laney while working for a local construction firm, the “Three Buddha”. This combination of academic and daily practical training has given me the foundation needed to finish my B.Arch at California College of the Arts with the AIA Henry Adams Medal and Certificate of Merit in May 2016.
