Colour, 61 pages.
The book shows in detail the design and construction process of a transitional bamboo house for the Philippines, a country that was affected, in 2013, by Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest typhoon ever recorded. The low-cost structure is based on the traditional Filipino house, the Bahay Kubo, and was designed to explore a resilient solution for imminent hazards. Moreover, the design could be adapted to any tropical climate where large bamboo grows, considering the local building techniques.
