The Bamboo Amphitheater Space Structure, a new, sustainable building on the campus of the Pontifical Catholic University outside Rio de Janeiro, is a uniquely mobile structure. Thanks to the pliability and relative lightness of the bamboo from which the amphitheater's supports are made, the structure can be quickly erected or taken down depending on the needs of the moment.
The Bamboo Amphitheater Space Structure consists of three interlocking panels that get progressively larger toward the outer edge of the space. This gives the theater the same general shape as most theaters, but thanks to the sustainable choice of material, the new structure is far friendlier for the environment. That quality is especially important when one considers that the building is located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest.
