The Veil - White Palace on HCMC's Pham Van Dong Street is one of the nominees for an award at the 2021 World Architecture Festival in Lisbon, Portugal.

The wedding and convention center is shortlisted in the "Display - Completed Building" category along with 20 others after being chosen from thousands of entries.

Talking about the honor, the head of the design team, Nghiem Dinh Toan, said: "Being on the shortlist of WAF is really a great pleasure for us. Although it is not a huge result, it is an important milestone marking the development of 'me+ architect' as well as me personally".

The building, which measures 1,000 square meters, is inspired by bridal veils, and its openness, homogeneity, cohesion, and sense of materials create a luxurious space, me+ architect said.

The World Architecture Festival, the world’s largest annual international architectural event, will go online from Dec. 1-3.
