Bamboo house construction

construção em bambu! America estrada do sol

It has been a few years since my folded bamboo concept was proposed in 2009. I am always questioning how an architectural concept can adapt to the local techniques via the refined, sometimes reinvented process based the unique context. I am so thrilled to see the bamboo structure been constructed by a team of talent people in Brazil! Congratulations to Daniel, Engels and Javier, Natalia. The 7 meters high structure was mounted on the floor, and posed in a way to represent the flower blooming. The structure consisted of 7 modules. Each module consists of 3 triangles, representing a petal of the flower. Thanks Luke Henry for providing all the materials!
