Bamboo Pavilion Showcases 'Green Steel'

The Vietnamese firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects is known for designing innovative, green structures,  using bamboo as the primary support system. Green Ladder, a  plant-filled pavilion at Sydney’s Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation has an open framework inviting exploration from visitors. Elevated woven planters create levels of greenery, while a flat roof of clear acrylic panels provides shelter from the elements.

Below is a photo I took in the Gili Islands, Indonesia of a major hotel under construction using bamboo as part of its support system.
