Elora Hardy, founder of the Ibuku company, builds entire houses out of an extremely sustainable material: Bamboo! This way Hardy could prove that bamboo does not only provide shelter, but can also be quite beautiful and luxurious.
The advantages of Bamboo are clear: it does not only grow fast and has a light weight, it also has a similar tensile strength like steel and resists to compression just as well as concrete. It’s disadvantage, the vulnerability to bugs and the elements could luckily be overcome before the building starts with the help of natural salts.
