second Place, Vietnam
Architect:Doan Thanh Ha, Tran Ngoc Phuong
In Vietnam, the natural phenomena are severe and various: storm, flood, sweeping floods, landslides,
drouhgt, etc… The damage every year, which is considerable compared to the world scale, takes away
about 500 persons and 1.2%-GDP-equally assets and reduces the involved areas’ development.
One solution to houses and homes for millions of these people is the goal of this BB (Blooming Bamboo) home.
From the bamboo module of φ8-φ10cm & φ4-φ5cm diameter and 3.3m or 6.6 length, each house is simply
assembled with bolting, binding, hanging, placing… This pulled monolithic architecture is strong enough to
suffer from phenomena like 1.5m-high flood. The space is multifuntional such as House, Educational, Medical
and Community Center and can be spreaded if necessary.
