Five Element Ahimsa – Bali

Five Element Ahimsa - Bali

Location: Bali, Indonesia
Construction Period: 2008 – 2012
Site Area: 9000 sqm
Floor Area: 2009 sqm
Architect: Arte Architect

Human and nature relations are represented in the application of bamboo architecture throughout the buildings in Fivelements complex. Besides its rapid growth—fully grown in just two or three years—and its recyclability, bamboo is a local material strongly representing tropical architecture. The Mandala Agung in Madya area is the largest bamboo structure that functions as the meeting place. Local wisdom is also applied by the architecture through design process that combined the principles of architectural geometry with Balinese philosophy, producing wide spanning construction shaped like a mountain, or tumpeng shape, with bow structure without columns in the middle of the structure.

The main structure of the construction consists of whole bamboo poles spanning from the lower structure to the roof, reaching a height of about 12 meters. These structures are joined at the top and are supported by a protruding bamboo tube, creating overlapping roofs and a very tall bamboo construction.

Fivelements, which has been given the FuturArc Green Leadership Award 2011 in the commercial architecture building category and Asia Pacific Spa Hotel Awards 2011 as the most recommended hotel spa in Indonesia, is more than a hotel.

World’s First Biodegradable Car: Kenneth Cobonpue’s Phoenix Roadster

roadcaster

www.inhabitat.com

You are looking at the world’s first bamboo and rattan roadster, a biodegradable car called the Phoenix. The Phoenix was created by product designers Kenneth Cobonpue and Albrecht Birkner and was built in just 10 days of bamboo, rattan, steel, and nylon. At 153 inches long, it is a small and elegant solution to a big and ugly problem: the waste created by old cars that outlive their purpose. “This project attempts to unveil the future of green vehicles using woven skins from organic fibers mated tocomposite materials and powered by green technology,” says Mr. Cobonpue. So how does it work?

The Phoenix’s biodegradable skin is designed to last the average length of time a person keeps a car (5 years in industrialized countries, 10-20 years elsewhere) so that the car doesn’t create unnecessary waste by lasting longer than its owner needs it. The skin can be replaced inexpensively if the owner wishes to keep their car longer, and the Phoenix’s frame can be easily customized for individual customers’ needs. No word yet on exactly what engine or motor will power the green car, but it is small enough that an all-electric setup should provide plenty of juice to move this work of art around town.

BamTrike- Sleek and Sexy Transportation Made From Bamboo

bam-trike

www.greenecoservices.com

The newest name for vehicles is now called Personal Mobility Vehicles. (PMV) This innovative new PMV from bamboo is not available yet and is part of ongoing research by Monash Student Alexander Vittouris. His words about the  BamTrike:

‘The parts required for construction of the recumbent chassis have been reduced to encompass the outer framework of the vehicle. By using large molding sections of bamboo fiber, combined with Polylactide resin, the overall assembly complexities are reduced. The philosophy behind this innovative approach is to motivate the consumer in active production of the outcome and enhance the feeling of ownership via positive contribution. The challenge of successive concepts is to find additional ways of making the raw material of bamboo benefit the intention of naturally derived personal mobility.’

It’s sporty, sleek and sexy at the same time and would be fun to troll around town in, and it looks like there is enough room to go shopping at Costco.

The Calfee: A ground-breaking eco-friendly bamboo bike

bamboo bike

The Calfee, designed by Rachel Hammond and carved out of specially selected bamboo stems collected from remote mountains of Taiwan’s Yushan National Park, is a great way to go green.

The innovative idea shaped into reality in California, where the bamboo stems are smoked and heat-treated to give it that extra strength to ride miles, and then is put together into a frame. The extremely durable hemp fiber lugs are joined to the various pieces and then the process of coating it with a satin polyurethane sealant begins for the successful completion of the production.

Weighing almost the same as its metal equivalent, the Calfee has a lot to offer to the environment. Bamboo being a good absorber of greenhouse gases pays its share to the environment. It is exceptionally strong, hence supports greater load than mild steel and is more flexible than carbon fiber to absorb shock well.

The Calfee is made available for users in the Eco Age shop owned by actor Colin Firth, his wife Livia Giuggioli and her brother Nicola. You can lay your hands on this biodegradable bike for £3,000.

Bamboo-made taxis run on coco-biodiesel

taxi-phillipines

www.greendiary.com

Rustico Balderian, the Mayor of Tabontabon, Philippines, intros two bamboo-made, coconut bio-diesel powered taxis. Both are made of 90% bamboo, which is a sustainable and natural material. Furthermore, the taxis are almost fully covered in banig, the Filipino woven mat. Dubbed as Eco 1 and Eco 2, these taxis can ably carry 20 and 8 people around respectively. Spacious enough!

Fuel-efficiency is the decisive benchmark that goes on to label them fully sustainable. While Eco 1runs for 8 hours on one gallon of biodiesel, Eco 2 nowhere falls short on mileage. Eco 2 is more stylish than the other one since it touts a stereo with sound system. Well, as a matter of fact, Philippines is well ahead of others when it comes to the use of renewable energy and materials. Be it the Go Green Philippines campaign or the age-old tradition of using natural material in fashion accessories, it has outclassed others.
