Representing a significant milestone in America’s ongoing diplomatic relationship with Vietnam, the New Embassy Campus (NEC) embraces Hanoi’s modern urban landscape while reflecting the city’s serene natural beauty.
EYP completed an extensive master planning effort and is providing architecture and engineering design for the NEC. The site includes a new office building, marine security guard residence, support annex, utility building, parking garages, and campus access pavilions.
Uniquely situated on an active urban boulevard, the eight-acre campus connects the bustling city with the tranquility of the adjacent Cau Giay Park. Inspired by Ha Long Bay in northeast Vietnam, which is known for its shimmering waters and thousands of towering limestone islands, the building materials portray America’s forward-looking, reflective, and transparent approach to diplomacy. Embassy functions are organized under a grand civic canopy displayed along the boulevard, while community areas are oriented with views to the park. In the elevated gallery and outdoor terrace, visitors can join dignitaries at an afternoon reception in a safe, secure environment.
When the embassy is ready to grow, the highly efficient site plan provides adaptability and long-term flexibility for expansion. Through its siting, materiality, transparency, and environmental responsiveness, the NEC offers an open, engaging architecture representing America’s diplomatic partnership with Vietnam — a glimpse into what’s possible as the two countries continue to strengthen political, economic, and social ties.
