As more layers of bamboo are added, a treehouse would form.
As kids, most of us fantasized about owning a tree-house in the woods where we can play and have some get-togethers. So how do you build a treehouse? Hammers, nails/ screws, and planks of wood, right? Well, a firm has just designed a treehouse that would only need rods of bamboo and rope. Amazing, right?
Penda, an architectural firm in Beijing, won second place at the A’Design Awards in the architecture category. Penda has built a prototypical version of the modular bamboo system. They named it “Rising Canes” after the bamboo sticks stacked in layers to form an eco-friendly hotel.
By 2023, the team plans to expand the system outside Beijing and build a larger model that can accommodate about 20,000 inhabitants. Have a look at this hotel in these images below.
Who wouldn’t want to live in this beautiful complex of tree houses that bring you closer to nature while preserving the ecosystem as well! Watch this video about “Rising Canes” and let us know about your views!
