Bamboo Skyscraper - Singapore

Humans have been cutting forests to eat and to build. Building from fiber waste and grass means using less trees and more plant and grass fiber. Bamboo is a giant grass. Some species grow stronger and harder than oak in just 5 years. Why wouldn’t we want to build with a strong natural fiber that takes 5 years to grow instead of 20, 40 or 80 years?

What will the cities and towns look like using bamboo as structural material for all kinds of buildings? Walking in a bamboo forest meantime the sunlight filters through the mist, the towering bamboo, arching overhead like a cathedral, waving back and forth. The concept for a bamboo forest comes where their distribution and height follows the plot’s orientation and shape. All buildings have perfect sunshine radiation and enjoy the best views. This distribution gives us a feeling of growth, as bamboo does.
