Bamboo Construction Manual Summary
The bamboo construction manual is the reference for learning assembly techniques basic using bamboo.
An extraordinary natural material, bamboo fascinates as much by its adaptive capacities as by the assemblies it allows. The raw material offered by this plant has been used for generations for crafts, housing and everyday life. We all have in mind the amazing scaffolding used in Asia. In Latin America, a long tradition of bamboo construction remains, particularly in Colombia. Originally from this country, the author has brought together in this book most of the Colombian techniques while adding Asian methods. Organized in 68 detailed files bringing together more than 380 technical drawings, this manual is ideal for getting started or improving your skills in the practical use of bamboo: panels, mats, parquet floors, dwellings, frames, roofs, ladders, etc. The ingenious techniques described here require very few tools. Many people have drawn on this guide. An essential reference since the 1980s, it is finally available in French. This translation fills a gap, especially since the bamboo is coming back in force and the constructions that use it multiply. Its ease of implementation and its unequaled resistance, its Zen and contemporary aestheticism, its rapid maturity and its renewable culture make it a material now more and more popular. In the face of deforestation and growing ecological pressures, bamboo offers new perspectives.
