Architects Want to Build a Whole City Out of Bamboo

Beijing- and Vienna-based architecture studio Penda has revealed renderings for a 200,000-person city made out of interlocking bamboo rods that it believes could be built by 2023. The houses would be constructed modularly and would actually become more stable as more were built, apparently. "As the number of inhabitants keeps growing, the structure gets extended to accommodate multiple communal spaces, bridges and even floating structures," one of the architects explains.
