On Dezeen a focus on Bamboo House designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects, part of the series House for Trees, which hosts plants of bamboo in huge, grooved concrete planters, in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City.
The House for Trees series is one of a number of projects using greenery to combat problems in dense cities. Italian architect Stefano Boeri is a key advocate in this kind of sustainable architecture and has used his concept of vertical forests to create green space in a host of cities. Others include Kengo Kuma, Jean Nouvel and Herzog & de Meuron.
