Project Description

In Vietnam, the natural phenomena are severe and various. The annual damage, which is considerable compared to the world scale, takes away about 500 people and 1.2%-GDP-equally of assets and reduces the involved areas’ development. One solution to houses and homes for millions of these people is the goal of this Blooming Bamboo home.

From the bamboo module of 10 centimeters and 5 centimeters diameter and 3.3 meters or 6.6 meters in length, each house is simply assembled with bolting, binding, hanging, and placing. This pulled monolithic architecture is strong enough to suffer from phenomena like 1.5 meter-high floods. Currently, H&P Architects is experimenting the model to endure 3 meter-high flood. The space is multifunctional such as House, Educational, Medical and Community Center and can be spread if necessary.

From the fixed frame using around 8-10 centimeter-wide bamboo, the house cover can be finished according to its local climate and regional materials (such as bamboo, bamboo wattle, fiberboard, and coconut leaf) in order to create vernacular architecture.

The users can build the house by themselves in 25 days. Additionally, it can be mass produced with modules and the total cost of the house is only $2500. Therefore, the house can warm people in the most severe conditions and help them control activities in the future. These constructions can contribute to ecological development as well as economic stabilization. This will give conditions for self-control process and create connection between vernacular culture and architecture.
