China has seen a growth in sustainable housing. In order to solve a rising crisis of homes being destroyed from natural disasters, rural villages have been quickly building green-roofed homes. They’ve also taken advantage of the large amount of bamboo in the Baoxi area with energy efficient houses.

While most of China is using concrete to build structures, bamboo has been increasing over recent years.
