Zoka Zola’s Naturally Cooled Bamboo Hostel Is Giant

by Andrew Michler,

South China’s sub tropical climate is the perfect environment to push the envelope for naturally cooled architecture. Zoka Zola Architects
fully intends to maximize the art and science of natural cooling as they unveil a hostel that is fully ventilated using only prevailing breezes to keep occupants comfortable. The aggressively flared roof and carefully designed air shafts scoop up prevailing breezes and transfer the currents throughout the building. Made from locally grown bamboo the project aims to be the greenest building in Southern China.
