More about »Grow Your own House: Simón Vélez and the Bamboo Architecture«

Architect Simón Vélez, born 1959 in Columbia, recognized the benefits this material offers and put them to practical use in a large number of buildings. His project, the pavilion for the ZERI Foundation at Expo 2000 in Hannover – at 40 meters in diameter and 17 meters high one of the largest bamboo structures in the world – is described in great detail.
