Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia recently designed a stunning conference hall that is made out of two different kinds of locally sourced bamboo. Not only is bamboo a fast-growing renewable resource, it is also an extremely strong and long-lasting building material. This building uses bamboo to create a visually stunning experience for guests.

The bamboo conference hall is part of the Naman Retreat Resort, which is located in the port city of Da Nang. Although the floor plan is fairly simple, the vaulted ceilings serve as a stunning focal point. The ceilings are made from locally sourced bamboo, which is woven into an asymmetrically pattern. The strategic lighting inside the hall further enhances the space by making the room feel bright and airy.

Not only is the conference hall visually stunning, but the use of bamboo makes the space more energy efficient than other available options.
