Text description provided by the architects. Inspired by nature, “Bamboo wing” takes the form of bird wings and floats over the natural landscape of the site situated near Hanoi, Vietnam. The aim of the project was to study bamboo and the potential space it can create by using bamboo not only as a finishing material but as a structural one. This building is a pure bamboo structure, using no steel or other man-made structural materials.

This unique structure, flying over the sky as bird wings, allows us to experience a 12 meter open space without any vertical columns.The open space can be used for many purposes such as wedding parties, live music concerts, ceremonies etc. This is an achievement not only in terms of structures in bamboo but it also creates a new trend for new ecological materials- which easily available in Vietnam.

The shape of the roof as bird wings is good for capturing the wind inside the building. This contributes to the ecology aspect by minimizing the use of air conditioner. With its deep eaves and the water in the open spaces, people feel as if they are living in the nature.
