low cost bamboo housing in vietnam by H&P architects


vietnamese low cost housing by H&P architects
six member family

 

 

developed by vietnamese H&P architects, the low-cost housing project is situated in a flood-stricken region that receives extreme temperatures
year-round. meeting the basic residential needs of a residential dwelling, the building will be assembled using minimal components and bamboo
module units. secured using anchors, ties and solid connections, the structure will be strong enough to float in floods. built with local materials
such as bamboo, leaves and recycled oil containers, the concept combines traditional architectural characteristics to distinguish the exterior fabric.
costing just under 2000USD per unit, the plan allows for mass-production, and the ability for villagers to build themselves.
