Design of this project is based on Feng Shui concepts. With emphasis on the flow of energy towards the West Lake and Hong River, the museum extends to the center of the new urban area, leading to the West Lake.


Exterior of the building has an impression of calmness which symbolizes the spirit of Vietnamese people. Walls are covered with continuous eaves, which lead the natural light into the building and provide contact with outside, while providing weather protection. The large roof, gently sloping upward and extending to the east, signifies the development towards the future of Vietnam.
