In 1970 he became the first director of the Vietnam Institute of Mathematics. Later on, he also became the founder and first editor-in-chief of two of Vietnam's Mathematical Journals: Acta Mathematica Vietnamica (in Latin) and Vietnam Journal of Mathematics (in English). Lê Văn Thiêm died in 1991 in Ho Chi Minh city.
The charming reception hall interior with Colonial French architecture.
The main entrance door has some fine decorative art.
The French colonists, who occupied Vietnam, wanted to feel at home.
Not only did they import their culture, religion, and food, but they imported French architectural styles as well.
As Vietnam opens up to the world, the French architectural heritage is enjoying a new renaissance as one of the country’s tourist attractions.
