“It was a pleasure to work together. I always looked forward to our conversations, and I learned something from each step in the revision process. Hoang and David were efficient, reliable, carefully attentive to the details and ready to offer multiple solutions to every problem. I hope we can continue working together in the future!” (Russell Perkins, Artist)

“Hoang Nguyen and David Gobber design courage for the future by giving utopias a concrete form to look at.” [translated] (FuturZwei, Foundation for Sustainability)

The collaboration was cooperative, professional and very inspiring.” (Barbara Lenherr, FHNW Institute of Architecture)
