This volume uncovers contemporary architecture and design’s resurgent love affair with bamboo. Light, stiff, strong and incre-dibly fast growing, bamboo is a true super-plant, and in construction it is becoming a super-material. A comprehensive introduction explores all as-pects that architects working with bamboo will need to consider. Bamboo has traditionally been used in many cultures around the world, and its influence is spreading. Collected here are some of the most beautiful, creative and cutting edge bamboo projects of recent years, accompanied by photos, plans and inspirations.
