Meet the bamboo-tent hotel that can grow
It's a sleek, modern but still as whimsical version of the classic tree house.
Flexible, versatile and sustainable–these words best describe the bamboo structure design by Beijing-based design cooperative Penda.
Inspired by how tipis of the Great Plains Native American peoples were constructed, the bamboo structure is a triangular, lightweight building that can easily be expanded vertically or horizontally.
Bamboo, both easy to grow and is an readily available, native plant in China, was chosen because of its sustainability.
