Constructed of bronze and glass, the new structure references the form of a Japanese lantern and functions as a tea house, meditation space, and stage for the family’s musical recitals.

News Laos is a news and information black hole in which the state apparatus has complete control over the media and relatively few people have Internet connections. A decree by the prime minister in January 2016 allowed foreign media outlets to set up office in Laos on condition that they submit content to the ruling Lao People’s Revolutionary Party before publication. As a result, only the Chinese news agency Xinhua and the Vietnamese news agency Nhan Dan have opened bureaux in Vientiane. Laos is ranked 171st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, one place lower than in 2018. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Houayheuang Xayabouly, a Laotian blogger known as Muay Littlepig, who was sentenced to five years in prison last month for telling her fellow citizens about the government’s poor response to flooding in the south of the country.
