A Survey of Bamboo Architecture

A Survey of Bamboo Architecture | 建築 | Scoop.it
To many architects and designers, bamboo, one of the most eco-friendly materials on the planet, is much more than just a tool with which to decorate and embellish existing structures...

This eco-friendly material has the same technical performance as most timber, concrete, and steel constructions- but with a  smaller carbon footprint. One of the fastest-growing plants anywhere on Earth, bamboo's regenerative properties are unmatched.

This collection of buildings showcases the natural aesthetic beauty of bamboo architecture.
