To celebrate bamboo as a building cloth, the first International Bamboo Architecture Biennale took place in the small village of Baoxi, China.

Curated by creator Ge Qiantao and inventor George Kunihiro, the contest invited 12 inventors to uncover how this traditional material can be incorporated into contemporary designing and architecture.

Julien Lanoo, the photographer who took these epitomes, was truly inspired by the biennale. “For centuries, bamboo was used in these rural communities in many different ways, ” he told My Modern Met. “A construction material with numerous calibers, it has or is disappearing swiftly on the Chinese mainland in favor of material. The quick and vast expansion of brand-new Chinese municipalities invalidated numerous traditional ways of building.”

From a ceramics museum to a student lodging- each bamboo design built for the structure biennale dishes a specific purpose and capacity. “After the Biennale, this will become a visitors middle, inn and lodge and learning core, ” Lanoo said. “A brand-new lifeline for the village, attracting outsiders, for international peace and tranquillity, and its the representatives from the roots of Chinese culture and increasing importance and attractivenes of bamboo.”
