Bamboo Skin

Building skin as a bridge
Building system as a bridge
Bamboo forest bamboo harvest bamboo skin
Skin as infrastructure
Skin as layers
Skin as screens
Skin as scaffolding
Skin as drying racks
Skin as windows
Skin as blinds
Skin as flesh
A building that breathes

A building that is better
Better sensibility, better health, better community, better life

A building, a forest of bamboo
Cultivating land
Cultivating place
Cultivating being
In situ

Concrete and brick
A contemporary vernacular
Beauty in its structural simplicity and material consciousness and
Hand troweled qualities

Cladded in ceramic tile
An uninformed dress
Alienated itself from itself
Standing in the world

What is vernacular in a global village ?
How does a building breath?
