A team from China’s Tongji University has finished building an impressive bamboo house, which they submitted into the The Solar Decathlon competition in Madrid.

Designboom reports:

The house features two curved roofs and a solar-facing wall which are clad with photovoltaic panels that can generate enough energy to sustain the house, and potentially sell back to the grid. Another highlight of the 75 m2 house is the innovative interior wall covering, which utilizes phase change materials (such as those used in heat packs) to heat and cool the house.
