Twenty-nine DTU students collaborated with the host team from the Danang University of Technology to introduce the historic architecture of Danang and Quang Nam Province to students from other cities. DTU students were represented in most of the “Ant” teams in the competition. The team “Yellow Ant”, which had the most DTU students, won in all contests.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Kim Phuong, a DTU student said: “I was very surprised when my team “Yellow Ant”  won three first prizes. We tried our best and were very happy with the result. In addition to the awards, we were really happy to make friends with other architecture students who share the same passion as us.”

At the end of the festival, all students enjoyed music around the camp-fire, thanks to the hospitality of their hosts. The next Student Architecture Festival will be held in 2014 in Binh Duong Province.
