Ho Chi Minh city bookstreet was created on the need to revitalize an important space that is well connected to the city iconic Cathedral and Central Post Office. The design of the street is not only to activate the space but also serves as an income for the city and local book merchants. The bookstreet concept focuses primarily on an oasis in the middle of a busy city that everyone can come to shelter themselves from the chaoticness and exchange knowledge with one another.
