Although one might not imagine it today, Phnom Penh once heralded the "little Paris of Asia" was an architectural golden child of the 1950s and 60s. Cambodia more widely, was known as a country with rich and diverse architecture since the mid 20th century, with several institutional and iconic buildings constructed during the French colonial era across many provinces in the nation. One of the most notable and celebrated Khmer architects - Vann Molyvann - was particularly prolific in the 60s, many of whose projects can be found in Phnom Penh. What may be surprising, is the inspiration for many of these buildings borne from Khmer objects found in everyday life.
Although every day is women's day at Raintree, this month is International Women's Day. At a time where gender and power are increasingly at the forefront of people’s minds, less than 5% of Fortune 500 companies had female CEOs in 2018. We review how we are engaging in gender and diversity this March, along with highlights from some of friends of Raintree who are doing fantastic work and organising events not to be missed.
