What's inside


This design is based on the "fish beam" concept, developed in Germany in the 19th century. The lack of wood during the Industrial Revolution obligated Europeans to think what could they do with 15 cm diameter woods. 1970's reforestation began in Europe. 1990's Jorg Stamm (German) interpreted it with Guadua Bamboo in Colombia. 2018, we interpreted it with local Moso Bamboo during the revitalization process of Chinese traditional villages.
