On a slope near the village of Karjat, India, an international team of architects has begun to envision a modern, 3-story building that will use bamboo as a primary supporting material.  Intending to spur eco-friendly changes within the Indian construction industry, the ambitious Dutch architect Robert Verrijt and Indian architect Shefali Balwani of Architecture Brio have created an exciting example of engineering prowess, innovative aesthetic, and altogether- sustainable design.   Combining natural and local materials such as bamboo with wood, concrete and steel, the project has been designed with the help of engineer Vilas Gore of GeoScience Services. The building will act as a staff dormitory for the NGO Magic Bus.
