This bamboo greenhouse has been proposed and constructed in response to the need for a greenhouse in raising and managing plants, through a joint development project applying the hydroponics method of growing crops using no soil. Its bamboo structure utilizes connector design and the attributes of the materials themselves to achieve a simple structure that anybody can build on their own, with no need for any special skills or materials. It also secures sufficient green house space for growing crops. In addition, in light of the abandonment and growth of bamboo forests, which has become a topic of concern in society in recent years, it uses Phyllostachys pubescens bamboo from forest thinning activities as its main structural material, enabling renewable use of bamboo materials.
