“Through our experience, we know bamboo is easy to access in this tropical climate, which reduces both construction time and budget. In this project, the essence of using bamboo was “lightness,” as bamboo can be lifted up by a few workers and easily transported to the highest floor by a crane”, architect Vo Trong Nghia said.
