22 Bamboo Architecture Pieces

From Elastic Band Buildings to Chocolate Chipchitecture

— January 20, 2011 — Eco
This cluster of global bamboo architecture proves that using this sustainable material is not only easy on the environment, but also on our eyes. In fact, much of this bamboo architecture is downright beautiful, not to mention innovative. Scroll through the slideshow to see everything from a school made of bamboo to a bamboo healing resort in Bali.

Implications - Innovations in design can occur in a range of areas, from structure to color; however, the most recent development in design places emphasis on chosen mediums and materials. The use of bamboo in architecture is a great example, providing structures with a lighter, more refreshing aesthetic than their brick predecessors.
