Goethe Institute releases 3rd photo book on Vietnam - ảnh 1

The book was ceremoniously released this week at the Goethe Institute in Hanoi. Speaking at the event, Dr Waibel said it took over one year for colleagues and himself to complete the project. This is the third in a three-book series of large-format photo books centred around the urbanization and movement of the nation to a more industrialized economy that Dr Waibel has partnered with the Goethe Institute to publish. Earlier, two photo books Mega City-Ho Chi Minh City in 2014 and Hanoi- Capital City in 2015 were released, with massive support from sponsor AUDI Vietnam and the German government. Michael Waibel is a researcher and head of urban projects at the faculty of geography of the University of Hamburg in Germany.
