Architecture by Road was discovering the amazing Tonlé Sap lake and his habitats. The road to get there was difficult and full of adventure.The Tonlé Sap is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The Tonlé Sap is unusual for two reasons: its flow changes direction twice a year, and the portion that forms the lake expands and shrinks dramatically with the seasons. From November to May, Cambodia's dry season, the Tonlé Sap drains into the Mekong River at Phnom Penh. However, when the year's heavy rains begin in June, the Tonlé Sap backs up to form an enormous lake. Habitats are there, really well adapted to this particular context.
Architecture by Road.
We are two young architects and one director decided to travel around Earth to understand the diversity of dwellings and ways of living. Each month, you will find on www.architecturebyroad.com , videos, pictures and articles about this first travel in Asia. The aim of the project is to produce a long documentary film about contextual architecture around the world. Enjoy!
