    Bamboo has been widely known as a sustainable building material due to some reasons among others are bamboo can be easily cultivated and harvested in a relative short time and can be reused. Bamboo as building materials is easy to bend and lithe. Those characters are very suitable for organic shaped building construction. This paper attempts to discuss how bamboo is being used in organic shaped building. Several case studies are taken to describe the relation between shape, structure, construction and joint system. It will classify how bamboo is formed in curved thus result is an organic form. The paper result will show that bamboo can be a potential building material for organic shaped buildings and become an alternative building material other than steel and concrete.
