Chapman Taylor’s technologically advanced masterplan concept for Hyper City Dong Mo in Vietnam

Chapman Taylor has created a masterplan concept for Hyper City Dong Mo, a new, technologically advanced urban area at Lake Dong Mo, near Son Tay in Vietnam.

The concept envisages a mixed-use urban development which makes use of, and seamlessly integrates, the most advanced technological systems from around the world to help promote social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Hyper City Dong Mo will include a diverse range of uses and amenities, including a residential and hotel building, restaurants, cafés, retail, transport and logistics infrastructure and an animal welfare research centre. There will also be pioneering “Future Food” aquaculture and agriculture area, showcasing techniques and technologies for ensuring a secure, healthy and sustainable food supply.

Its extensive entertainment, leisure and hospitality offer will include future-themed exhibitions and events, a “Mars colony” theme park, a space port experience, a “Space Water park”, an ancient-village-themed area, a casino, a marina, an “Eco-tech” hotel and a mountain eco-resort.

A key focal point of the masterplan is its Hyperloop railway station, which creates a futuristic city environment with technological advanced transport systems, connecting the masterplan with cultural and technological areas in the wider region, including Vietnam National University, the Thien Ma urban district, the Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism and Hoa Lac Tech Park, the first and largest (at 1,586 hectares) Vietnamese technology park, which was developed as a science city and has over 200,000 people working and living within it.

This innovative masterplan concept for Hyper City Dong Mo was created by Chapman Taylor’s Bangkok studio.
