Up in the Trees

I recently came into contact with a very interesting person.  His name is
Thomas Allocca and he's a  wooden architecture designer and journalist from Italy.  The reason that I've come into contact with him is that he has taken an interest in cultivating many varieties of Madake (phyllostachys bambusoides bambusoides) in his homeland.  To that end, he contacted by good friend Derek Van Choice, maker of Inga shakuhachi and me for information.  An aritcle was published in an online magazine which can be found here .  Aside from wanting to supply Europe with a local source of madake (largely for shakuhachi making) he has done some very interesting archetecture related to tree houses.

Check him out.  He's an interesting guy!
