From the fashion scene to a fascination with building a sustainable home out of bamboo. Elora Hardy had a successful career in the fashion industry in New York, but left it all to follow in the footsteps of her father. After Elora saw the buildings her father was building out of bamboo, she too wanted to build one of her own. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and has the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and force of concrete. The pictures below are breath taking and will probably make you wish you had a home of bamboo yourself.
