Let’s get Asian

Blending Asian and French for a new/old look

Let’s make getting to Haiphong worthy of a world-class tourist destination. Own .

The trip from the airport to the old section of Haiphong in Vietnam was lackluster. There wasn't much sense of arrival, the downtown lacked organization, and there just wasn't enough going on to attract tourists and bring them back year after year.

This plan added soccer fields - they fit better with this concept than Addis - and linked civic features with a renovated waterway, new plantings, wider sidewalks and more public open spaces.

Illustrating this was fun, too. Watercolor over photocopies of sketches, touched up after scanning into Photoshop.
