Bamboo Pavillion

Australian designer Esan Rahmani together with Mukul Damle have designed ‘Bamboo Pavillion’, a synthesis of sustainable ideas for a communal shelter for disadvantaged populations around the Indian Ocean Rim.
Bamboo is already used in Asia and Pacific regions as a building material due to it’s adaptable qualities to make roofing, flooring, water and drainage pipes and be used as structural members.Bamboo is renewable, inexpensive and with it’s light (hollow) physical characteristics it means minimal energy is used to transport it which makes it a highly sustainable resource.Using smart joinery and efficient use of bamboo, there is no need for the use of other materials to construct the shelter.
