St Joseph’s Cathedral is an iconic building situated on Nha Chung street near the old quarter in Hanoi. It is one of my favourite places to stay when visiting the capital and is where one of our collaborator shops ‘Collective Memory’ is based. I made this design inspired by their neighbourhood to help them celebrate their 4th birthday. To the left you can see the piling up of shops and cafes with motorbikes passing by and crowds of tourists at the gates of the cathedral. If you look more closely more details will appear in the splinters such as a newly married couple having their photos taken.
