We developed a structural system out of Bamboo. By adding and connecting new bamboo culms to the structure, it grows and becomes stronger to take on more loads of the building, leaves any harm on the site, nor on the material itself. Therefore the building and the way bamboo is used as a structure is very much involved in a life-cycle of plants. A true ecological approach of building, which leaves no harm to the surrounding environment and therefore a counter-movement to a conventional city plan
