The aim of the project is to help improve public capability to adapt and respond to climate change via re-use of waste items and efficient use of energy. A collection and reuse of a variety of old/ broken construction materials such as scaffolding steel pipes, sheet metals, bricks, ashlars,  bathroom ware, tables and chairs,…with the local people’s involvement in manual construction are proposed in order to create a structure secure enough to stand heavy storms.

Ventilation and natural lighting are also dealt with efficiently. Solar energy is converted into electricity for lighting facilities and heating water for daily use. Rain water and used water are also utilized.

Re-ainbow reflects the image of a rainbow as to the inspiration of various colors  emphasizing the equal value of each. It is, at the same time, intended to improve social awareness of the diversity in identity and the legitimacy of the pursuit of equality of  each individual in the society in shaping and developing new rural model in Vietnam currently.
