This eco-friendly material has the same technical performance as timber, concrete and steel constructions, but has a much lower carbon footprint. It is one of the most versatile and flexible materials and has regenerative properties. Get yourself inspired!

    Brilliant Architecture, one thin is guaranteed with the use of Bamboo, there is no deterioration (raught)of the wood. Would lv to build a summer home with Bamboo!

  • Despite the fact that Great (Bamboo) Wall is finished back in 2002(at least the source claims so) it feels modern and up to date due to fact that they have combined glass with some “old school” materials.

    Whatever is the history it sure looks amazing!
