This 40m2 bamboo and rice straw shelter is in Ramsar, Iran. It
is made from 70 young and still flexible bamboo poles, arranged
along two semicircular segments at the base. Bundles of rice straw were used to thatch the roof. Rice straw swells in wet
weather keeping the rain out and the inside dry. Conversely when
itís sunny and hot, the dry straw lets air flow in and out keeping
inside comfortably cool.
