International Bamboo Architecture Biennale

International Bamboo Architecture Biennale 
The first International Bamboo Architecture Biennale took place in the small village of Baoxi, China in 2016. These images, shot by photographer Julien Lanoo, give a sense at how the bamboo buildings blend into the community as permanent structures. “For centuries, bamboo was used in these rural communities in many different ways,” Lanoo tells My Modern Met via email. “A construction material with many qualities, it has or is disappearing quickly on the Chinese mainland in favor of concrete. The fast and vast expansion of new Chinese cities overruled many traditional ways of building.”

    Bamboo grows fast, cheap, easy for process yet tough and durable. It's the wonder material for the poor.
