This geometric bamboo structure is not located in Asia or in the tropics, but in the rather unexpected locale of Goshen, Indiana. American architecture practice De Leon & Primmer created the Mason Lane Farm Operations Facility as their entry into the 2010 World Architecture Festival. It houses farm equipment, hay and other stored goods. The bamboo stalks were laid out in a lattice grid fashion and assembled using galvanized rebar wire ties, providing perforated walls that let the wind dry…

The Swing Pavilion: Lombok International Bamboo Architectural Festival. Highly expressive bamboo pavilion that use traditional bamboo craftsmanship as a construction method. Its geometry is based on the “Enneper Surface”, a double-curved surface that originates in the fields of algebraic geometry. The double-curved surface operates as grid-shell that uses the bending properties of bamboo for its strength.  http://www.l-e-a-d.pro/projects/swing-pavilion/3054#sthash.Aq2Jf5rk.dpuf
