New bamboo architecture and design pdf
OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS: International Bamboo Construction Competition- INBARMost importantly, a conscious building design will then protect against weather impact such as driving rains, moisture and UV radiation from the sun. Even for institutional buildings bamboo offers new architectural opportunities. Finally, the architect can master most of the structural engineering secrets, and optimize the design for economy and slender sections, fully aware of the strength limits of bamboo. Given the never ending urban sprawl, the transport problems become nightmares paralyzing the economy. A reasonable multistory urban density could offer synergy effects when turning garbage into energy, sewers into drinking water, structuring public transport corridors. Bamboo Design Considering the huge CO2 emissions by the steel and cement industry an innovative architecture using alternative materials is needed. One resilient option is bamboo with high CO2 sequestration capacity.

That in itself defines what academicians call "style". Bamboo is a resource that grows quickly and essentially can grow in various soil and climatic conditions different types of bamboos, not all of them usable for construction. It can be called a "sustainable material" for construction if it is cultivated as such in the area where it is intended to be used. As is done in the North East of India. Any material that is not locally available is and has to traverse a distance is essentially unsustainable and that goes for bamboo too. That does not mean bamboo is a material that is hyped.
