Since 1997, the installation artist Markus Heinsdorff has confronted the traditional material of bamboo in his buildings. The main focus of this book is the German-Chinese House designed by Heinsdorff for EXPO 2010 in Shanghai. With numerous illustrations and a series of detailed articles, this book documents the planning and realization of the pavilion, and reveals the thinking behind its design. Further contributions deal both with bamboo as a raw material and as a medium for architecture and design. One chapter is devoted to other artistic structures and walk-in installations by Markus Heinsdorff, including Skyplace, an airship built in Bali, a tree house in the canopy of a primeval forest tree, and a self-renewing dome, the latter two both in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
