Vietnam's Bambubuild (previously) constructed a new restaurant and bar using a combination of modern design tools and bamboo, creating a serene spot within this ecotourism resort in Kim Bôi, a rural region in northwest Vietnam.
Bamboo is connected together with lashing and bamboo bolt to form a frame on the floor before being erected by crane. Bamboo frame connected with the foundation and concrete beams with metal pipes, iron pins makes the structure stable. This construction technique is easy to make by low-skilled worker with simple tools.
A short distance away, the outdoor pool bar area is a smaller, conical version of the restaurant that's supported with sweeping columns of bamboo, the shape of which were designed using parametric design tools.
While bamboo isn't necessarily an appropriate technology for every climate or bioregion, building with bamboo in this region makes sense here, as it grows abundantly and can be easily re-harvested over and over. And when merged with modern design techniques, it can really shine. To see more, visit Bambubuild.
