Bamboo Symphony is an effort to reverse the trend and replace steel with bamboo. The office has an open plan with four split levels, wrapped around a central lotus pool, with the architect’s cabin placed at the bottom level, visually connected to all spaces for easy communication.
The structure of the building is based on the structure of the fisherman’s net, a structure in synergy, where the total load is distributed to all the bamboo elements. These structures are highly efficient with minimal energy and material usage. The reason for the structural efficiency is homogeneous load distribution. It has been designed as a hybrid of synergetic and tensegrity systems and was physically tested before concreting the roof.
