Vertical residence: Ha Dong by Danny Bach
Vertical residences are a popular solution for urban living. They are apartments, condos, and mixed-use developments with elevators, parking, and shared recreational areas. They are convenient and desirable due to their proximity to work, city amenities, and breathtaking views from above.

In Vietnam, the shift towards urbanisation has led to changes in land use, especially in regions like Ha Dong, a district in the capital city of Hanoi (formerly known as Ha Dong city). This district currently acts as the gateway to the capital, and as a result, it has experienced a substantial influx of vertical migration alongside rapid urbanisation. The landscape of Ha Dong has undergone a transformation, with agricultural fields and village houses being converted into modern urban areas.

The population growth can be observed over the period from 1975 to 2009, during which the population density increased from 3,588 people per square kilometer to 4,611 people per square kilometer. The next decade witnessed a skyrocketing rise to 8,900 people per square meter by 2022 (according to Hà Đông geography), showcasing the extent of the impact of urbanization.

The rise of vertical residences has significantly influenced Vietnam's modern culture and society, reshaping the physical landscape and transforming human life in this new era. The rapid escalation in urban population density is expected to intensify demands on resources and trigger further social changes.
