Architect Nguyen Quoc Hoc: Countribution to the homeland a gratefulness

To Architect Nguyen Quoc Hoc, the land of Tay Nguyen has significant meaning in his life: the land is not only the place where he was born but also a place whose landscapes, geographical conditions and people gave him a nice soul and a nice view of life in harmony through artistic and cultural fields he is going through. “I find it a gratefulness to the land I owe myself to”, confided Hoc.

Everything devoted to Tay Nguyen

Hoc was born and grew up in Gia Nghia - a city on the beautiful M’Nong Plateau, Dak Nong. Growing up in an artistic family: his father was able to write and draw very well; his mother was a teacher. It is possible that the family background had impacts on him and has helped him work well on various fields today.

The most typical one is Phap Hoa Pagoda- an agency of the Buddhist Provincial Association- the architectural work of Asian and Tay Nguyen characteristics and a must-see tourist attraction in Dak Nong. The work won the award C (no awards of A and B) on the field of architecture of the Provincial Second Literature&Arts.

Along with poery, Hoc has also composed over 100 songs with influences from Tay Nguyen, including 10 songs in the album The Land of Poetry receiving warm attention from the music-loving public.

He confided: “During the years of working, I have always been pondering on how to create beautiful, heart-touching works of architecture to rekindle the desire to restore, develop and protect the beauty and value of Tay Nguyen architecture in particular and the country’s architecture in general”.

Not focusing on calculations and numbers to make the most beautiful design plans only, Hoc also devoted to the passion of literature and arts. He has published 11 books on various fields of music, religions, architecture and especially books of poetry… to serve Tay Nguyen people’s spiritual life. His poems are contemplations about love for his home land and people, love for family life. Images of Gia Nghia and images of Tay Nguyen can be found in the poems… And the poem book ‘Mien Dat Binh Yen’ won the award of the Provincial Second Literature & Arts Award.

And the song Hat Phap Uom Man Bazan- The Buddhist seed on basalt written about Buddhist ideas in Tay Nguyen tune received the A award in the Buddhist Song-writing Contest of 5 Tay Nguyen provinces.

The book Tay Nguyen Architecture to be published in the near future is the opening publication for the book series. He wanted to offer readers a 10 year work and research on Tay Nguyen architecture- a valuable document for those who love and want to discover the land.

Each song he wrote in an artistic achievement filled with enthusiasm, sincerity and desire of creation. Through his songs, one can find a sensitive soul of a true artist: each words in lyrics carrying the most sincere and intense desire of love to people and life.

Keep striving as a gratefulness

It is obvious that most of Hoc’s career is associated with Tay Nguyen. “When choosing the land to start my career and to offer contribution, I find it a gratefulness to the land I owe myself to…” Tay Nguyen is his great source of motivation for him to strive and to contribute his part in spreading good values of the land to people nationwide through his particular activities.

Currently, he has had many plans for the future. Although having no idea about how far he can do, he will try his best to complete the whole-life project he have cherished The History of Vietnam Architecture. And the book Tay Nguyen Architecture to be published in the near future is the opening publication for the book series. He wanted to offer readers a 10 year work and research on Tay Nguyen architecture- a valuable document for those who love and want to discover the land.

From his love to his homeland, Hoc has used his enthusiasm, wisdom and talent to make it beautiful. And he has been working hard on new topics and on unexplored matters to apply them on his works of architecture, poetry, music and books- as a contribution to the development of Tay Nguyen in particular and of the country in general.
