Description


Bamboo: a versatile material


Traditionally a building material of the warmer
climate zones, bamboo is becoming increasingly popular amongst
architects in the northern hemisphere; bamboo has several advantages -
it is very stable, of low weight, and highly elastic, in addition to
being readily available as well as renewable. The applications of bamboo
in architecture have diversified considerably, so that today, even
structures with large spans - such as bridges - are built with this
material. Renowned universities such as the ETH Zurich or the SUTD in
Singapore have conducted research on engineered bamboo which will
further expand its use. The third edition of this manual provides a
systematic overview of the applications and processing methods of this
renewable material. Recent inspiring bamboo buildings have been added.
