Using locally available material like bamboo- that is natural and green- acts as a key element of sustainable architecture approach. Bamboo, grows extremely fast- abundantly, quickly, and cheaply. It acts as building material, with high compressive strength and light in weight. Using this vernacular material can help an architect create a Green-Building.
Since historic times, bamboo has been used as supporting member to concrete. Now-a-days it is used for the construction of scaffolding, bridges, pavilions, outdoor structures and of course, houses.
Advantages of Bamboo Architecture:
Strong in both density and rigidity.
Tensile strength remains the same throughout the age of a bamboo plant: the plant fiber strength increases as it gets older.
Economical and Green
Flexible and versatile building material
