Bamboo: A sustainable material

Bamboo comes from a grass that grows in Asia, Central America and Africa. It can be harvested in a period of time between 5 and 6 years, unlike other timber species that require up to four times more. In addition, being an herb it does not need replanting since it springs naturally every year. The rapid growth of the plant is its great advantage compared to wood because the yield of a bamboo forest can be 20 times bigger than a tree forest. This does not mean that wood is not an ecological option as well, since controlled wood operations lead to an increase in forest masses, keeping them healthy and developing.

Architecture and Bamboo

Resistance, durability, and sustainability are the three main factors that are influencing the use of bamboo by architects and designers.
