'The outcome of an exhaustive research project into the material science of bamboo conducted by designer Freeman Lau Siu Hong, this dense volume presents the long history and deep cultural significance of this highly adaptable organic material with diverse applications in design, architecture and daily life. Starting from an exhibition and pavilion at the first Beijing International Design Triennial, the book takes an in-depth look at all aspects of traditional and modern bamboo design, from baskets, chairs and other furniture to bicycles and even bamboo automobiles. Various viewpoints on bamboo architecture in both Asian and Western cultures are also addressed.' - from the publisher
