i've made a blog pile of a sampling of my favorite of their works to date. This is the first of 4.
Binh Duong School
Anyway, this school epitomizes the openness of the Vietnamese elementary school, with it's flowing spaces and ingenious "S" curve that allows for the building to both open to the street with an initial courtyard that then opens to a second, more private courtyard that opens to the landscape, where recreation is held. You can see from the image above the urban courtyard opening to the second, landscape courtyard beyond.

|The pavers are both town and landscape. Such a nice opening to the tree..|
