BAMBOO HOUSING | H&P Architects

…the concept combines traditional architectural characteristics to distinguish the exterior fabric.

Secured using anchors, ties and solid connections, the structure will be strong enough to float in floods. built with local materials such as bamboo, leaves and recycled oil containers,
costing just under 2000USD per unit, the plan allows for mass-production, and the ability for villagers to build themselves.

Developed by Vietnamese H&P architects, the low-cost housing project is situated in a flood-stricken region that receives extreme temperatures year-round — meeting the basic residential needs of a six person family.
