CONCEPT
The construction method CanyaViva, began with the observation of the cane in its natural state and the spaces in the river created by it to grow. Upon immediat contact with the plant the steps were defined and CanyaViva method parameters that optimize the use of the material to build flexible and organic structures, but also strong and stable, able to withstand winds, floods and even earthquakes.
CanyaViva is a construction model that respects nature as a fundamental principle. We want to expand the use of natural materials, really abundant and renewable. Besides the cleaning of bamboo and cane fields helps to prevent fires and floods, stimulates plant growth, favoring the establishment of large amounts of CO₂ and improves the quality of material year by year.
We understand each of our projects as a social meeting place, a labor camp, learning, research and knowledge exchange.
