beautiful buildings. Would love to see more acceptance by councils for using it in home building as structural supports.
My only concern is that huge commercialization of bamboo would be another cause to knock down rainforest so people could plant this or that preexisting native bamboo forests would be decimated. Many controls would need to be put in place to ensure it was planted and harvested in a sustainable way.

I applaud his use of bamboo and I look forward to building something larger with it too. :)
