New Haven, Conn. — Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects will design a new headquarters for Vietnam’s national oil and gas company, creating a landmark development in Hanoi. PetroVietnam Construction Joint Stock Corporation, a subsidiary of PetroVietnam Oil and Gas Group, selected the firm following an international competition. The project is expected to break ground by the end of the year.

“We are honored to be selected for such a prominent project for one of Vietnam’s most important companies,” said Fred Clarke, Senior Principal of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. “Our design expresses the prestige of PetroVietnam and the potential of Hanoi and all of Vietnam.”

In the proposed design, a 79-story tower known as PetroVietnam Tower will contain the company’s headquarters and a luxury hotel. This building will be the centerpiece of the development and the city’s tallest building. To create its distinctive silhouette, the tower is hexagonal at the base and becomes triangular at the top. An adjacent 84,000-square-meter podium is composed of curving forms. A new center for the community, the podium will include a petroleum museum and media center, shops, and a skating rink. At the opposite end of the podium will be a 47-story residential tower with curved facades and a sloping top.

Highlighting PetroVietnam’s interest in sustainable energy, the development will be designed for LEED Gold certification. A glass wall will allow visitors to view some of the building’s high-performance systems in operation. In addition, part of the podium roof will be clad in photovoltaic panels. The building’s use of advanced technology extends to its structural design, which will enable the building to withstand a severe earthquake.

PetroVietnam Tower will be Pelli Clarke Pelli’s second project in Vietnam. The first, Vietcombank Tower, is under construction in Ho Chi Minh City.
