low cost bamboo housing in vietnam by H&P architects

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.

  • What a beautiful bamboo house. May i know what is a good bamboo preservation technique so this house would last? This is really a cool design.

  • Plug up the holes at the end of the bamboo. Those could turn into great spaces for nasty insects and wildlife to inhabit.

    Very cool.

  • Nice! We are considering simple, cool, moveable housing where we can guard our crops against monkeys. Thanks for all the ideas!

  • nice concept but how do you ascertain that the bamboo supports will not rot during flooding? Or when it is in contact with soil for that matter? Or do you plan to replace the the supports regularly?

  • Shut up, and take my money!

  • this is niice except one lacking.. a speed motor like a generator motor and a wheel that controls the wing under the motor. so when it floods and starts running around the water surface it can be controlled and move some place else coz these bamboos’ could only let the house float but if another bamboo house starts bumping another bamboo house or let’s just say a floating car starts bumping the bamboo house then it’s tragic trouble coz the anchor wouldn’t do anything once the big waves of the flood or tsunami starts moving the surface…

    SUGGESTION
  • This is incredible. The U.S. has a staggering homeless population. This could be adapted for smaller shelter that is sustainable and cheap for transitional populations.

    Fantastic!!!
