Functional and magical buildings can be built with bamboo, the natural, woody grass that grows worldwide. The uses for bamboo canes ranges from expensive fly-fishing poles, to furniture and flooring, and scaffolding in Asian construction project. Due to bamboo's fiber, texture, and color, no two poles or panels are alike. Every structure, bridge, or room is totally unique when timber producing bamboo species are utilized.
