Bamboo Wing / Vo Trong Nghia
Architects: Vo Trong Nghia Location: Flamingo Dai Lai Resort, Vinh Phuc province, Vietnam Completion Year: 2010 Construction Area: 1,600 sqm Photo credit (construction): Vo TrongNghia Co., Ltd. Photographs: Hiroyuki Oki Inspired by nature, “Bamboo wing” takes the form of bird wings and floats over the natural landscape of the site situated near Hanoi, Vietnam. The aim of the project was to study bamboo and the potential space it can create by using bamboo not only as a finishing material but as a structural one. This building is a pure bamboo structure, using no steel or other man-made structural materials. This unique structure, flying over the sky as bird wings, allows us to experience a 12 meter open space without any vertical columns.The open space can be used for many purposes such as wedding parties, live music concerts, ceremonies etc. The shape of the roof as bird wings is good for capturing the wind inside the building. * Location to be used only as a reference.
