Swiss architecture firm Bureau A has created a seven-storey mobile performance space and street
kitchen – mounted it on a tricycle and rode it round the streets of Hanoi in Vietnam.
The studio designed the project for Tadioto, a cultural centre, as a multipurpose structure to be
used for anything from a vertical street-food restaurant to an exhibition space.
Made from a framework of blue-painted steel tubes, the mobile structure also has a small PVC roof and
a battery-powered fan and lights.
The tricycle has been adapted to fit in the bottom section of the structure.
“We crossed the whole city with it, from the outskirts in the fields where the bike was
actually made to the very centre of Hanoi where we had a small party,” said architect Daniel Zamarbide.
