Buddhist University and Monastery in the past, an example of harmonious combination of wood and stone in the present. Two architects worked together on the temple: the human and the nature. Majestic trees looks like they can overcome any oppression of humanity. But is there any hope for it? As we can see, to be great is not the same thing as actually to be strong.

Location: Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia
