Alexander Golinski designed Vertical Bamboo Village, an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional skyscrapers. Bamboo is readily available in Asia, and when it is harvested responsibly it makes a fantastic low-impact building material. The bamboo gardens located around the project and on its roof provide bamboo that can be used to produce new parts for the building.
