Description

In this globetrotting tour of seventeen houses, discover how bamboo, one of the most sustainable building materials on the planet, can be used in ingenious ways in residential design.

Bamboo is a perennial grass that grows rapidly and rivals steel, concrete, and wood in strength. Bamboo Contemporary shows the many ways this incredible material can be used to build sustainably. Featuring locales from China to the Czech Republic and the United States, the survey includes homes built entirely from bamboo as well as building projects and renovations that use bamboo as the primary component. Fascinating descriptions, documentary photography, and architectural drawings will appeal to aspirational lifestyle readers interested in sustainability and natural materials as well as design professionals.

 

William Richards, a writer and architectural historian based in Washington, DC, has contributed to Architect, Architectural Record, Landscape Architecture, and Old House Journal.
