Bamboo is a construction material commonly associated with Asian culture and tradition. In most Asian countries, bamboo is used to create structures like suspension bridges, fences, houses and a bamboo building. This fast-growing tree is known to be even stronger than oak, making them more than ideal for typhoon-prone countries like the Philippines.

Today, you’ll be taking a glimpse of the most stunning bamboo structures around Asia. Check out the photo gallery below.

The design of this bamboo building was inspired by the Great Wall itself, which lies straight ahead from the house. According to designer Kengo Kuma, “The Great Wall in the past partitioned off two cultures, but this Bamboo Wall would not only partition but also unite life and culture.”
