DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Twin Lotus Murals in Noi Bai airport

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Murals

INSPIRATION:
In June 2017 Thu Thuy was awarded Bronze of IDA for the Tropical Garden Mural at Danang International Airport and in April 2018 she won Silver ADesign Award for the Hanoi Ceramic Mosaic Mirror House in Hanoi. Based on this success she decided to further public art at the new international airport in Hanoi, where it could be appreciated by millions of people each year. After careful inspection of the available space at the terminal, she selected the two outdoor facades with reflecting pools as the location for the murals. She could visualize a tranquil lotus gardens welcoming weary travelers.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In early 2018 artist Thu Thuy first proposed to the directorate of Noi Bai International airport NIA the idea of painting the two lotus murals on the 2 big walls of the east and west wings of the new modern T2 terminal. Supporting the passionate and bold idea as well as Thuys design of Vietnam national Lotus flowers, the NIA commissioned the artwork for its facades. Now, as travelers arrive at the airport terminal T2, they are confronted by 2 huge Lotus murals with vibrant colors and lively lotus flowers and leaves. The reflection of the murals on glass and water ponds are really amazing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As travelers arrive at Terminal 2 they are initially astonished by the sheer size of the lotus mural, amazed by the stunning reflection in the water and in the windows, actually increasing the size by four times, calmed by being embraced with its beauty and refreshed by the sheer experience of a unique encounter with nature.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
In early 2018 Nguyen Thu Thuy proposed the Twin Lotus murals project to the directorate at the Noi Bai International Airport. Upon approval the actual work began on the walls in October, 2018 and was completed by the end of December. On January 3, 2019, an official opening ceremony was held.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Social Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
To paint a mural of this size, measuring 15m high x 24m wide, required an eight story scaffolding. Nguyen Thu Thuy and ten artists from the New Hanoi Arts company carefully collaborated on their painting technique as they created flower by flower, leaf by leaf, in order to reflect a unified style. Special weatherproof Dulux paint insured the mural retained its true color for years. During November and December 2018 the painting was completed.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
One of the first and most important steps in the process was to take Nguyen Thu Thuys original sketch, which was 1.5m2 and scale it to 360m2. Attention to detail was critical. The outline of the enlarged sketch was transferred to the east and west wing walls, each measuring 15m high and 24m wide. Refined painting skills allowed each artist on the team to work independently with careful oversight by Nguyen Thu Thuy, to insure successful completion

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Each year Noi Bai Airport welcomes more than 18 million international visitors. This location provides the ideal opportunity to introduce travelers to the cultural beauty of Vietnam. To make this vision a reality, the east and west wing facades of the modern T2 terminal were selected as the ideal location to paint the Lotus flower mural. The reflecting pool magnifies its beauty and grandeur.

CHALLENGE:
The selection committee at Noi Bai International airport set very high standards for approving public artworks. Thu Thuy submitted detailed proposals and impressive sketches to persuade NIA to accept her ideas and designs. Manually scaling the 1,5m2 original sketch into the 360m2 mural for each wall was challenging but successful. Painting on eight story scaffolding, directly in front of the painting, made it difficult to add the correct details and shading, which is much easier when the artist can stand back and observe the entire mural.
