About this product
- DescriptionThis highly illustrated text brings together two areas which have both grown in popularity in recent years: gridshells and bamboo. Bamboo is a fast-growing, naturally available, renewable resource which is quite strong and lends itself to structural applications. In this unique text, David Rockwood demonstrates the viability of bamboo as a building material and considers the advantages - as well as the challenges - of working with bamboo. Its properties, workability, connections, assembly, erection processes, structural behavior, and final use are explored in detail through a series of design-build experiments and case studies from Hawai'i and Vietnam. The only book available on the subject, Bamboo Gridshells provides a comprehensive introduction to this emerging techlogy which will be of interest to anyone working in the areas of sustainable or environmental design, ecological construction, low techlogy strategies, or alternative materials.
