In Pictures: Not just for scaffolding – Kowloon Bay’s stunning bamboo pavilion

In summer 2015, construction workers erected a new pavilion for public events in Kowloon Bay, next to the MegaBox shopping mall. The pavilion was unique in that bamboo was not only used as scaffolding material – the entire structure is, in fact, made out of bamboo.

The ZCB Bamboo Pavilion was designed by a research team led by Kristof Crolla, an assistant professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)’s School of Architecture. It forms part of the Construction Industry Council’s Zero Carbon Building complex, which first opened in 2012.
