Penda designs flexible bamboo hotel to connect guests with nature

Penda designs flexible bamboo hotel to connect guests with nature | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Design collective Penda has developed a concept for a flexible, portable hotel made from rods of bamboo, designed to bring guests closer to nature.

One With the Birds was developed by Penda – based in Vienna and Beijing – for the AIM Legend of the Tent competition in China, which challenged architects to develop low-impact tent-themed hotels offering a closer connection with the outdoors.

Penda came up with a concept for a flexible bamboo structure that can be easily expanded horizontally and vertically. Find more details at the article.

Lombok International Bamboo Architecture Festival 2013

Lombok International Bamboo Architecture Festival 2013 | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
To raise awareness about the significance of bamboo, a collective of groups hosted the Lombok International Bamboo Architecture Festival in December 2013.

Bamboo, one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, has gained its cultural and economic significance in Southeast Asia not only due to its speedy growth, but also thanks to its strength, which allows it to be often used as building material instead of steel.

This peculiar monocot plant is also a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine and can be used to create fine, long-lasting furniture and other diverse structures. And bamboo was also the centerpiece of an international festival initiated this year in Lombok, Indonesia, in the hope of making it an annual event.

Mullen Street residence by Craig Steely Architecture

Mullen Street residence by Craig Steely Architecture | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The quiet, sunny location of this difficult site generated a wholly unique arrangement of space, not typical to the city-- a San Francisco house where the main ideas expressed are transparency, sunlight, and a direct connection to nature. The house will integrate photovoltaic panels, a sod roof, and 25' timber bamboo growing through the house...

Creative Culture: Infinity Bamboo Forest

Creative Culture: Infinity Bamboo Forest | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

This beautiful passage in a public annex building in Wuxi, China, was designed by Prism Design and has been recently opened to the public.

As the main building, where the passage leads to, has a concept based on Japanese culture, Prism wanted to use the image of a full-grown bamboo forrest prominently in the space, continuing the reference to traditional Japanese design and culture. The project had limited budget, time, and space within the annex building, causing Prism to take on a minimal approach in its design. Inspired by the concept of visual infinity they decided to create the illuminated passage of twenty meters, using only a limited amount of the total space and creating a clear focus on their enhancement to the space. As the rest of the room is dimly lit the beautiful passage“seeks to extent to infinity in a finite world.”

Blooming Bamboo Home: A Modular Solution for Emergency Housing | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

H&P Architects from Vietnam provide an effective solution to emergency housing with this simple self-assembly home that can be mass produced at a minimal cost in a span of 25 days. BB (Blooming Bamboo) home is one solution to housing for millions of people in calamity-hit locations.

The prototype has just been completed last month in Cau Dien Town, Tu Liem District, Ha Noi, Vietnam. From a bamboo module, each house is simply assembled with bolting, binding, hanging, placing. The structure is strong enough to withstand 1.5m-high floods.

Con el uso de materia prima renovable se pueden lograr cosas asombrosas en cualquier lugar del mundo. La diferencia la hace la buena voluntad de las Instituciones y de la gente que maneja estas ideas, logrando así resultados que a todos nos parecen asombrosos, pero que en realidad lo que tienen de bueno es que se llevaron a cabo. 

¿Cuál puede ser tu aporte, tu granito de arena en este mar de ideas global?
