– 18 departments + 3 future departments
– 1100 employees, offi cials

The project represents the local identity and characteristcs : elements of culture, history, politcs. The design harmonizes with nature, the climate and the sceneries of mountains and sea.
The building envelope consists of two layers: the perforated terracotta masonry layer defusing light, resisting heat and reminiscent of the traditional Cham architecture, and the internal transparent glass layer.
Building form and landscape give a conventional look but also friendly to be an architectural symbol of Quy Nhon city.
