Hello, I have been trying to decide for a while now if I should get a few bamboo plants for my balcony. Bamboo are the largest members of the grass family and are extremely resilient plants. They are very good for providing year round screening. Bamboo is also largely used as a building material in South East Asia and has a higher compressive strength than wood, brick or concrete. There are some amazing structures that have been built using just bamboo. Ibuku is a team of designers and builders based in Bali who are doing some amazing work using bamboo. Their work also proves that the vast potential of bamboo is largely underestimated. Take a look at some of their stunning work.
