1303 (10") Bamboo in the Desert. Category 11: Park and Garden Structures
Leslie Tom: USA
Designing with bamboo in the desert requires great efficiency because of less bamboo availability. This designer was approached with a project for The Kiva House, a home for the mentally disabled, and was asked to create a structure creating an indoor/outdoor space. A triangular tension system woven through a bamboo bone and skin system creates lateral stability.
