After several visits to Lu Ban Hap and his wife in France, I felt the need to share my experiences with Cambodia’s second educated architect. The German architecture magazine Bauwelt offered me to write about the architect’s work in Cambodia from 1960 to 1975. An article on the architect and a text on his most famous building form the thematic section of the issue:

Von Phnom Penh nach Paris nach Phnom Penh nach Paris. Die faszinierende Geschichte des kambodschanischen Architekten Lu Ban Hap
From Phnom Penh to Paris to Phnom Penh to Paris. The fascinating story of the Cambodian architect Lu Ban Hap
