Chiangmai Life Construction (CLC), Thailand specialises in modern earth and bamboo architecture. Their free flowing, organic designs are created in earth, bamboo, rocks and wood reducing their carbon footprint by 90%!
One of their newest projects has been a children’s playground. It’s been popular with the kids, with amazing properties of sunshine and rain protection and is much warmer to play on than regular steel playgrounds. See it here.
CLC was also a Finalist in the World Architecture Festival 2015 for its Erber Research Centre (pictured).
At TC we are loving bamboo as an alternative building material – we’ve been tracking it in Australia too!
MPavilion is set to popup again this summer in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Gardens – It’s an event and meeting space that also exhibits the wonderful properties of bamboo.
Dark Mofo also constructed the ‘hothouse’ (pictured) a temporary bamboo structure in Hobart to facilitate creative and collaborative thinking within the city.
Check out Cave Urban and Bamboo Congress for more bamboo projects.
At TC we love sharing projects from you, our readers so please get in touch with us!
