Bamboo Buildings around the globe


Bamboo Pavillion by Zuo Studio

This pavilion in Taichung was created by Taiwanese firm Zuo Studio to show how low-carbon construction materials can provide "a more habitable environment for our next generation."

Its 320 plants were used to produce its thick, hollow rods of Moso bamboo, which are joined by Makino bamboo segments that are smaller and interlaced.


Hardelot Theater by Studio Andrew Todd

The cylindrical Hardelot Theatre near Calais is encircled by twelve-meter-tall bamboo poles, giving it a cage-like exterior and a radiating pattern from its roof.

The playhouse's slatted timber paneling, which was created as a tribute to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, reflects this grid-like structure.
