Natural calamities, such as flooding, are a common phenomenon that affects millions of people worldwide, including South East Asia, and leave people homeless at the mercy of nature. Addressing the issue, Vietnam-based architectural firm by the name H&P Architects has come up with a sustainable housing solution that promises to provide shelter to the people who lose their homes due to devastating floods.
Made using natural resources like bamboo and leaves, the sustainable houses include empty oil containers at the base to help them remain above the water surface during floods. To keep the bamboo houses secured or stable at one place, they are anchored with ties, so they don’t drift away with the forceful water current. Easy to construct, people can build these bamboo houses on their own within no time.
