Abstract: This study examines the recent architecture of the Bui Thi Xuan neigbourhood in Hanoi, Vietnam. Since 1986, when the doi moi policy came into effect, the country has been experiencing a strong economic boom. As a result, the private sector plays an active part in the construction and renovation industries. The research focuses on a particular type of urban infill, where tall concrete structures are built within narrow and deep lots, and are often quickly renovated thereafter. The purpose of this study is to determine how these buildings can be physically and spatially modified in response to an already occurring urban densification. A systemic analysis of the building stock will reveal the viability of such options in terms of adaptability and environmental quality criteria. Recent renovations will then show how these structures are actually evolving within their environment. The research concludes with a demonstration of how these buildings, as they stand, have an under-exploited capacity to provide a healthy and adaptable environment.
