Could you live in a house that bends with the wind? Bamboo is no longer just for your eco-minded floors.  Elora Hardy who lives in Bali is making “bespoke bamboo” homes that are not only beautiful, but also bends in the wind.  Bamboo is not only a prime sustainable building material but it is ubiquitous.

No two poles of bamboo are alike, so every home, bridge and bathroom is exquisitely unique. In this immersive video-talk, she shares the potential of bamboo, as both a sustainable resource and a spark for the imagination.
