Yeah, an Oregon-style frame would probably be the most feasible with bamboo, and anyway, I don't know how precisely you can shape bamboo while it grows.

I haven't seen any examples yet of bamboo being shaped while growing. But smaller diameter poles are easily bent with steam, most familiarly for the frames of rattan/wicker furniture.
