Abstract: This thesis project is about designing a rehabilitation centre for Agent Orange victims in Da Nang, Vietnam. The site is an empty place near one of the contaminated lands located in Da Nang. It is an area between the urban residential settlement and woods. The current issues of the site are: 1. the land was contaminated by Agent Orange, which was an herbicide used by US force to defoliate the forest during Vietnam War; 2. The people lived there are affected by the contamination and resulting in a wide range of health problems; 3. due to the rapid urbanization of Da Nang city, there is an urge to remediate the contaminated land for future city expansion. The project focuses on using bio-plug and different plants to remediate the contaminated soil. Various Vietnam traditional medicine herbs will be used to treat the health problems caused by Agent Orange in the rehabilitation centre. In addition, horticulture therapy and workshop will be introduced to help the victim to recover and learn some skills. Since Agent Orange was used to destroy the forest in the past, promoting the growth of nature is considered as a way to counter the effect of Agent Orange. Meanwhile, greenery is also mentally healing to people. Hence, green façade and green roof will be applied to bring the greenery near to the patient.
