Bamboo is starting to come into favor with builders again—and not just for tiki bars. Bamboo floors are become more and more popular by the day and architects are relearning what "primitive" peoples have known all along: bamboo is an excellent material for building structures.
New Bamboo: Architecture and Design is a 208 page book documenting contemporary structures around the world
that use the Bambusa guadua species as a building material.
The book is apparently out of print and getting hard to find, and the price is rising accordingly.
