  1. Gorgeous, am curious how it smells there when you enter this new bamboo building. It’s really a great building material – and so very very cheap. The tensile strength is significantly higher than wood fiber. It is a cheaper and faster growing substitute for timber. Let’s leave the earth’s forests in peace and cultivate bamboo material. Furthermore, it is an ideal option for earthquake-prone regions. Due to the high bending strength, it is even possible to build seismic-resistant constructions. Storm troubled regions can sleep in peace as it also resists bad windstorms if it is solidly built by professionals. Still, I think it will not replace timber or concrete in the future. But we can easily increase its proportion.
    By the way, there are dozens of different bamboo types with different and individual qualities. All of them are easy to cut, non-polluting, light, easy to transport, easy to repair, … . And if a bamboo building is not enough, you can even build all your furniture with bamboo 😉
    Thank you for this article!

  2. This is exactly why I love builders that innovate and try to find and use new materials that make life easier/better. Using bamboo to build such a large structure was unheard off and now the Panyaden International School could be the first of many such buildings. The low carbon footprint is a strong reason why more builders should use bamboo as their building material.

    Could a skyscraper-type building be built using bamboo and some other materials? Now there’s a question future builders should think about.
