bam boom – Bamboo

Vietnam-Pavilion-at-the-Milan-Expo-by-Vo-Trong-Nghia-Architects_dezeen_784_1News: a proposal by  Vo Trong Nghia Architects to build towering bamboo structures modelled on lotus pods has been selected for Vietnam’s pavilion at the World Expo 2015 in Milan.

Founded in 2006, Vo Trong Nghia Architects is a leading architectural practice in Vietnam with offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. More than 40 international architects, engineers and staff work closely on cultural, residential and commercial projects worldwide.

By experimenting with light, wind and water, and by using natural and local materials, Vo Trong Nghia Architects employ a contemporary design vocabulary to explore new ways to create green architecture for the 21st century, whilst maintaining the essence of Asian architectural expression.

This is not the first project where we can appreciate this way of using  the bamboo. One of my favorites is Bambooboth , 2012.
