130131_Proposed Lakou Section

 


The initial idea is to find a way to use the properties of bamboo to create a multi-story typology without a skilled construction industry. The two secondary programs are created by the extension of the bamboo into the street. The higher extension provides shelter for commercial activity and the lower poles are spiked to ward off animals which after my interviews on site were identified as the biggest problem facing reforestation in the initial stage.
