Abstract: Climate change has impacted the Mekong River Delta severely. Drought during the dry season (Dec – April) and flash flood during the wet season (June – Oct) were encountered by the local inhabitants and has greatly affected the aqua-cultural activities and fishing villages/ township like Chau Doc, in Vietnam. Fishing rearing activities could only take place only over a few months annually. Contradictorily, it was announced in Masterplan 2020 for An Giang Province that Chau Doc will be developed and promoted into the Aquaculture hub even though the town has limited land/water area to maximize the rearing activities. The proposal’s intention would therefore improve on the current rearing time-frame; and the yield produced by the proposed fish farm. It will consist mainly the fish rearing area, restaurant, market and a recreational fishing area. The proposal will also explore the water quality control issue which plays an important role to the design concept and spatial layout. The Aquaponic system (integration of aquaculture and hydroponic) employed will display the farm as the “living system” demonstrating on how it can be operated sustainably with little reliance on the external resources yet at the same time, the rearing condition is being controlled.
