About this title


Since 1997, architect and installation artist Markus Heinsdorff has focused much of his work on the potential and possibilities afforded by bamboo. This volume shows how that interest played out in his design for the Sino-German pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai. The pavilion, the only binational building at the Expo, employs an innovative two-story bamboo membrane structure, while the rest of the building is composed almost entirely of bamboo canes and laminates. This highly illustrated volume documents the planning and creation of the building, as well as the environmentalist ideology underlying its design. In addition, the book features a chapter that addresses some of Heinsdorff’s other projects, including an airship built in Bali, a treehouse in the canopy of a primeval forest, and a perpetually regrowing bamboo dome.

About the Author:

Markus Heinsdorff is a German architect and installation artist who is currently a visiting professor at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China.
