#StoriesOnDesignByYellowtrace: In partnership with @spacefurniture, our latest Story explores radical Green Architecture that incorporates recycled materials, lush vegetation, proposing new ways of living in our cities. The Beijing and Vienna-based firm Penda developed Rising Canes for Beijing Design Week in 2015. The triangular structure is an investigation into ecological modular systems that can expand to become large-scale house schemes, hotels or emergency shelters, constructed from 100% recyclable materials like bamboo and ropes, negating the need for nails or screws. "The pavilion can be seen as the first step of many to follow, as the structural system is fully modular, ecological and easy to expand in every direction,” said Penda. During the Design Week, visitors were encouraged to seed plants into baskets that were connected to the pavilion. It’s intended that these plants use the structure to grow along and after some time, nature will become the project’s primary design-element. Penda suggests that the project is "strongly connected to the Cradle to Cradle movement, which proposes a holistic economic, industrial and social framework that seeks to create systems which are not only self-sufficient but also essentially waste-free." Rising Canes proposes a wonderful vision that could change the way we approach construction and urban dwellings.
