The most talented architect was Vann Molyvann, who completed more than a hundred buildings in just 15 years time. He contributed largely to the unique and authentic style of the New Khmer Architecture.

Most of these buildings in Phnom Penh and across the country survived the years of war and devastation remarkably intact, but not the large scale redevelopment and rampant land speculation. Molyvann’s landmarks, the National Theatre and the Council of Ministers building have already been destroyed. Many of the Cambodians ‘in power’ don’t see the importance of preserving icons of a movement they don’t regard as distinctively Khmer but rather modern – even foreign influenced.

    Discover the story behind Vann Molyvann, Cambodia’s most prominent architect that gained countrywide recognition during the 1950s and 60s. Head toward three of Molyvann’s most famous and iconic structures, including the special housing complex “100 Houses”, the University Campus of the Royal University of Phnom Penh and the National Sports Complex. Along the way, learn about how Molyvann led the mid-century trend of combining modern style architecture with local tradition, materials and climate to create one of the region’s most beautiful urban spaces. Explore the city’s architecture by car, minibus or by traditional tuk-tuk and led by an local architect or architecture student for an in-depth discovery alongside an expert.
