Vietnamese architect Vo Trong Nghia created a 30 ft tall bamboo structure, promoting the use of native building materials. The dome-like frame, covered in local bush plant on the outside, is built without the use of modern machinery. It does not contain a single nail as it fully relies on traditional Vietnamese weaving techniques.

Deemed a “bamboo virtuoso” for his outstanding buildings including a factory and the Bird Wing cultural center, the sustainable Water and Wind Cafe combines modern aesthetics with tradition.
