Breathtaking Bamboo Architecture From Around the World
Simultaneously beautiful and beneficial to the environment, bamboo structures are slowly seeing a comeback of epic proportions as architects and builders from all over the world are starting to incorporate this dynamic, durable, and eco-friendly plant into their jaw-dropping designs.
Commonly associated with those cute and cuddly panda bears, bamboo has become far more than just a tasty treat within recent years. Used for centuries to construct local infrastructure and housing throughout Asia, South America, Central America, and the Pacific Island regions, more and more people in North America are finally recognizing the versatility and value of bamboo. Unlike other traditional building materials such as wood that can take up to 60 years for maturation, bamboo is a reliable renewable resource that replenishes itself every 3-6 years, which allows farmers and cultivators to harvest their crops at a far faster rate than many other crops on the planet.
