Project descriptionHumans have been cutting forests to eat and to build. Building from fiber waste and grass means using less trees and more plant and grass fiber. Bamboo is a giant grass. Some species grow stronger and harder than oak in just 5 years. Why wouldn’t we want to build with a strong natural fiber that takes 5 years to grow instead of 20, 40 or 80 years?

What will the cities and towns look like using bamboo as structural material for all kinds of buildings? Walking in a bamboo forest meantime the sunlight filters through the mist, the towering bamboo, arching overhead like a cathedral, waving back and forth.

Stainless steel used as the joints’ material between bamboos. 260 m tall building cannot be tied with ropes! ETFE used as main material for the facade, providing high corrosion resistance and strength over a wide temperature range. It has a very high melting temperature, excellent chemical, electrical and high energy radiation resistance properties.

Due to bamboo’s nature, 1 single standing building wouldn’t be enough. A shape has been created where bamboo would give its best performance as structural material. Module units of 20m height: 1 single 30m tall bamboo can cover it all. Crossing bamboos and the two main structural cylinders ensure the stability of the skyscrapers. Structural elements are calculated to perform slabs’ stiffness.

The relationship between buildings has been solved through platforms in height, creating a community where an Architectural Village can develop its own public activities. The public spaces are those where nature and technology come together to create an atmosphere of serenity. The central vertical core, with a helix slope for accessing bicycles, give us the chance to connect all them together.
