Magical houses made of bamboo | Elora Hardy



You've never seen buildings like this. The stunning bamboo homes built by Elora Hardy and her team in Bali twist, curve and surprise at every turn. They defy convention because the bamboo itself is so enigmatic. No two bamboo balls are alike, so every home, bridge and bathroom is exquisitely unique. In this beautiful, immersive talk she shares the potential of bamboo, both a sustainable resource and a spark for imagination. "We've had to invent our own rules," she says.
