CanyaViva is a construction model that respects nature as a fundamental principle. The construction method began with the observation of the cane in its natural state and the spaces in the river created by it's growth. Upon contact with the plant the steps were defined and the CanyaViva method parameters that optimize the use of the material were established. To build flexible and organic structures, but also strong and stable, able to withstand winds, floods and even earthquakes.
