This hugely illustrated textual content brings jointly parts that have either grown in attractiveness lately: gridshells and bamboo.
Bamboo is a fast-growing, obviously on hand, renewable source that's particularly powerful and lends itself to structural functions. during this particular textual content, David Rockwood demonstrates the viability of bamboo as a development fabric and considers the benefits – in addition to the demanding situations – of operating with bamboo. Its homes, workability, connections, meeting, erection strategies, structural habit, and ultimate use are explored intimately via a chain of design-build experiments and case experiences from Hawai’i and Vietnam.
The purely publication to be had at the topic, Bamboo Gridshells presents a complete creation to this rising expertise with a purpose to be of curiosity to a person operating within the components of sustainable or environmental layout, ecological development, low know-how thoughts, or replacement materials.
