Woman Quits Job To Build Sustainable Bamboo Homes In Bali

The Bali resident and her team have spent the last 5 years revolutionizing bamboo construction in the belief that it is an underused but ideal renewable resource. Hardy uses boron, which occurs naturally in nature, to treat the bamboo and make it indigestible to insects. Hardy was inspired by her father, who “chose bamboo for all of the buildings on campus, because he saw it as a promise,” she explains in her TED talk. “It’s a promise to the kids. Bamboo has the compressive force of concrete, the strength-to-weight ratio of steel, and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world.

Penda's Fastener-Free, Re-usable Bamboo Structural System. Something you see a lot of in New York is workers assembling or disassembling a metal scaffold, but you almost never see them made out of new-looking pipes.

The banged-up metal is a testament to how much use they see over their lifetimes. Corrugated Bamboo Roofing Sheets — Guadua Bamboo. Corrugated bamboo roofing sheets on the other hand are cheaper, stronger, more durable, eco-friendly, and have better thermal and sound isolation.

Corrugated Bamboo Roofing Sheets — Guadua Bamboo

For all those reasons, bamboo proves to be a superior substitute for zinc roofing with an enormous market potential. The development of corrugated bamboo roofing sheets doesn't only make commercial sense, it also has a long term environmental and social impact as it offers income generating opportunities for rural communities involved in all stages of the production. A unit producing 500,000 m2 of roofing sheet per year will create direct and indirect employment for more than 200 people.

The firm proposes that the tiny bamboo dwellings, which can be placed nearby other units to form small communities within Hong Kong's disused industrial buildings, would serve as temporary shelter while the occupants secure more stable and permanent public housing. Gizmag has featured several low-cost bamboo housing prototypes before, including the Blooming Bamboo home and the Bamboo Lakou vision for Haiti, but the units designed for this project are on a much smaller scale.

The two-story prototype unit featured here measures just 15 sq m (161 sq ft), while still featuring a living area, kitchenette, bathroom, fold-out dining table, work area, and sleeping quarters. Different sized units can also be combined to form larger areas for things like communal dining, games or education. Penda's Low-Impact Modular Bamboo Hotel Reconnects Visitors with Nature. To satisfy the competition’s three principles, Penda used locally sourced and fast-growing bamboo as the primary building material.

Inspired by the minimalist teepees of the nomadic Native American tribes, the temporary and elevated bamboo structure eschews screws and nails. Instead, the structure comprises a grid of sturdy X-shaped bamboo joints that supports the addition of both vertical and horizontal bamboo rods, making it easy to create a variety of triangular room sizes that accommodate the needs of guests.

Taiwanese sculptor Wang Wen-Chih teamed up with the Sydney-based architecture and design-collective Cave Urban to create Woven Sky, a 300-foot-long shaded tunnel and tower installation in Woodford, Australia. Woven together from locally harvested bamboo and radiata pine logs, the sprawling tunnel took 40 workers and volunteers three weeks to build. Located north of Brisbane, the Woodford Folk Festival is an annual music festival that celebrates a wide variety of music genres for six days and six nights.

So far one home in the community has been built and is a spiraling canopy of bamboo set amidst the lush jungle above the river. Everything is made from bamboo, from the window frames to the staircase, tables, chairs, floors, and even the cabinets and the walls. The amazing craftsmanship in this home exemplifies what is possible with the fast-growing, renewable material. Green Village is within walking distance of the Green School and is built with the same principles of sustainability. The Green School Showcases The Incredible Potential of Bamboo Construction in Indonesia. The Green School was established side-by-side with the non-profit Meranggi Foundation, which develops bamboo plantations by presenting seedlings to local rice farmers. The project also harnessed the talents of PT Bambu, an architecture firm specializing in bamboo architecture. PT Bambu is responsible for the bamboo portion of the Green School’s campus, which consists of four classrooms, a drop-off center, faculty housing, offices, cafes, bathrooms, a gym, and the Heart of the School, a spiraling, multi-story building for school functions.

Along with the beautiful bamboo construction, the eco-school’s curriculum focuses on sustainability and offers many scholarships to local Balinese children. Talks to Elora Hardy, Founder of Ibuku, About the Creative and Sustainable Potential of Bamboo. We’ve showcased numerous bamboo designs over the years, from furniture to entire buildings, but when it comes to combining green building and renewable materials, Ibuku’s incredible bent-bamboo buildings take the cake.

The Bali-based bamboo building team already has luxury villas, houses, schools and infrastructure buildings in their portfolio, and is renowned for their dedication to using traditional Indonesian building techniques. We spoke with the firm’s founder and CEO, designer Elora Hardy, about vernacular architecture traditions, her involvement with designing bamboo buildings, and the reasons behind her vocational change from high-end fashion to sustainable architecture Photo by Rio Helmi INHABITAT: Before founding Ibuku, you had a successful career in fashion.

Bamboo Architecture Collection. Documentary reveals Vo Trong Nghia, Vietnam's visionary bamboo architect. Rapidly developing nations are a wild frontier of sorts for sustainable design and architecture; often building codes are lax or non-existent here, allowing local architects to experiment more freely with unconventional ideas and materials. Vietnamese firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects is one of these pioneers, having made their name with their award-winning projects made out of bamboo, as part of a larger movement to re-define a locally appropriate architecture that is distinctly Asian, affordable, durable and environmentally friendly. In this episode of Rebel Architecture, Al Jazeera English's six-part series on architects who are “shunning the glamour of ‘starchitecture’ and using design to tackle the world’s urban, environmental and social crises,” director Nick Ahlmark takes us behind the scenes to see for ourselves what Nghia's bamboo buildings mean in the larger context of Vietnam and beyond. © Vo Trong Nghia Architects © Vo Trong Nghia © Vo Trong Nghia via Designboom.

The Reality about Building with Bamboo. What does it cost to build a bamboo house? This is the million dollar question everybody likes to have a clean cut answer too. Bamboo for Africa. Bamboo Architecture: 12 Stylish & Sustainable Structures - WebEcoist. Tiny Houses Made Of Bamboo, Hiding Inside Abandoned Hong Kong Factories. With more than 7 million people living within a little over 400 square miles, Hong Kong doesn’t have much space for new housing. It’s also an incredibly expensive place to live--so much so that the poorest residents often end up renting tiny, rundown “cage homes” that are only big enough for a bed.

Architects from AFFECT-T now hope to help with a new set of modular bamboo homes that can be built as a mini-neighborhood inside old factories and other former industrial buildings. The factory walls would provide protection from weather and insulation, along with hookups to city services. Since there’s so much space between floors in industrial buildings, there would be room for two stories of living space in each home. And most importantly, reusing the old factories will open up opportunities for transitional housing in prime locations. The homes can also be easily customized by moving around the bamboo panels. Traditional Bamboo Floating Homes Updated. A Vietnamese architecture firm with a portfolio of modern public buildings has turned its hand to perfecting indigenous low-cost houses. In contrast to the very-low-cost housing ideas we’ve covered recently, this one relies mainly on a local material that can be grown sustainably: bamboo.

It’s a modular design which they say could be mass-produced; on the other hand, individual units could also be owner-built on site. H&P Architects estimate their homes could be built for $2000. Appropriate Building Materials: a Catalogue of Potential Solutions: Examples of building systems: Bamboo houses. • The examples of bamboo houses shown on the following pages are taken from the excellently illustrated bamboo construction manual by Oscar Hidalgo Lopez (Bibl. 24.07). • All the structural components and most of the non-structural parts (floors and wall cladding) are made of bamboo.

Deformed Dome: Bamboo Hut Builds on a Modeling Mistake. People marvel at the final digital renderings and physical representations created by architects and architecture students. Rarely, however, does the public get get to see the study models that are an essential part of the design process – even rare still: a finished product clearly based on a mistake that was made.

This remarkable project was borne out of an error in the model-making process that became a real-life building opportunity. A student of? Pouya Khazaeli Parsa thought building a dome was fairly straightforward, and started creating one with full-length poles arcing up toward the center and back down along the opposite edge. Of course, there was a problem: with structural members so thick (magnified at miniature scale) the overlaps started to twist and torque the pure hemispherical shape desired.
