Plunge into the deep Balinese jungle and you might suddenly find a bamboo building soaring above you. Made from the frankly unlikely building material, the ethereal structures are the brainchildren of designer Elora Hardy and her team at Ibuku (TED Talk: Magical houses, made of bamboo). The one-of-a-kind houses are curving, magical and utterly stunning. Take a look.

Six floors of bamboo home

Sharma Springs, a private home in Sibang Gede in Bali, has four bedrooms and stretches over six floors. It’s one of the tallest bamboo buildings in Bali; its design is intended to make you think of the petals of a lotus flower. Photo courtesy of Rio Helmi.

Intricate, interwoven bamboo

    1. What you think about this structures?
    I think that they are impressive because who new how to make these amazing things?
    I also think there’re rare because is that an every day thing?
    answer: no, looking at these things you’d say I’ll do any thing for one of these!
    I also think that it is cruel because panda s eat bamboo and there made out of bamboo and panda s live there, and if we make theses things panda s will be instinct.
    do you want that?

    2. Would you live in one? Why or Why not?
    this answer is all of the ones above but I have itleast 1 or 2 more I think.
    no: because there’s hole s on the floor and you could fall in them
    yes: because you have a nice view
    yes: because it’s nice and peaceful
    yes: because there’s no one to annoy you.,( except your family is there so they can take car of you, I suggest no one in your family annoy s you.)

    3. What do you infer they would use some of these structures for?
    for homes, for something to do and for them to make it over water, trenches and slippery paths.

    1. I think these are very 21st century looking! They look exiting, tranquil and a wonderful place to live in.
    2.
    YES! I’d love to live in one of these amazing and inspirational structures.😉
    3. Homes, Tourist attractions or hotels/ resorts, as said in the video: restaurants and educational facilities.
    I watched the video and this new way of housing is amazing, such a trustworthy and attractive material. Although I do think that Shontae is right about the pandas wellbeing so I do believe that one way to improve these awesome structures is to insure the bamboo is sustainable.😊🐼
