Day 1 Reflection by Saishwar

EQ1. How is innovation a key feature for survival?

The Vietnamese had created a path of tunnels across a long distance and these tunnels had been used for various purposes. They had been created in a way to not only move around discreetly but to attack and fool the enemies. They had created various traps which the enemies would not have thought of and also used various other methods to fool the enemies. These include wearing the slippers backwards to cover up the paths. They had also used the American's cloaks as a camouflage to fool other Americans. These various actions had actually helped them to save lives and eventually win the war.

 EQ2. How is cultural integration reflected in design?

The cultural integration played a huge part in design. In the temple, the three main religions of Vietnam were put into a single temple and made it seem as if all the people united into one common place instead of going to three separate places. This shows open-mindedness in Ho Chi Minh City.
